REVIEW
Amitabh Parashar, W Gregory Hundley
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Advancements in cancer treatment have resulted in improved cancer-related survival and consequently an increase in the number of cancer survivors. Unfortunately, associated with this increase in cancer-related survivorship, cardiac events have occurred with increasing frequency in cancer survivors. Recognition that cancer survivors are at increased risk for cardiovascular (CV) morbidity has generated interest to develop cardiac imaging techniques that identify subclinical CV disease during receipt of potentially cardiotoxic cancer treatment...

REVIEW
Ron Waksman, Micaela Iantorno
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review will focus on our approach for the treatment of refractory in-stent restenosis. RECENT FINDINGS: The discovery of bare metal stents over three decades ago set a milestone in the evolution of percutaneous coronary intervention, which is currently the most widely performed procedure for the treatment of symptomatic coronary disease. However, the broad utilization of stents resulted in the new phenomenon of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Over the years, there has been an increase of the incidence of ISR despite continued improvement of drug-eluting stent (DES) technology...

REVIEW
Haider J Warraich, Jamal S Rana
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Dyslipidemia in patients with T2DM confers significant additional risk of adverse outcomes to patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). These patients carry residual risk of adverse outcomes despite optimal management with conventional therapy such as lifestyle changes and statin therapy. The role of both nonstatin monotherapy in statin-intolerant patients and combination therapy with statins in patients with high risk of CVD events has been well studied. We sought to review the role of newer therapies in risk reduction in these patients...
