INTRODUCTION: The cardiac dysfunction associated with anthracycline-based chemotherapy cancer treatment can exist sub-clinically for decades before overt presentation. Stress echocardiography, the measurement of left ventricular (LV) deformation and arterial haemodynamic evaluation have separately been used to identify sub-clinical cardiovascular (CV) dysfunction in several patient groups including those with hypertension and diabetes. The purpose of the present cross-sectional study was to determine whether the combination of these techniques could be used to improve the characterisation of sub-clinical CV dysfunction in long-term cancer survivors previously treated with anthracyclines...
