Cardiology

 

In recent years there has a been paradigm shift in how to individualize use of antihyperglycemic agents in people with type 2 diabetes, with cardiac history and risk factors significantly affecting the guideline-recommended agents. In addition metformin, SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP-1 receptor agonists have become an integral part of treatment of patients with diabetes and comorbid cardiac and renal disease. Join expert faculty in this data driven session as they review the and discuss strategies to improve use of these agents in management of type 2 diabetes.

Confronting Cardio-Oncology: An Emerging Epidemic

Javid Moslehi, MD

 

The development of cardio-oncology as a clinical field has been driven by improved therapeutics resulting in a dramatic increase in the number of cancer survivors (~17,000,000 in the United States alone), many of whom suffer cardiovascular complications related to their cancer treatments. Both "traditional" and "targeted" therapies can affect the cardiovascular system resulting in hypertension, heart failure, myocarditis, arrhythmias, vascular disease, and thrombosis. While recurrence of cancer is the eventual cause of death in many "cancer survivors," cardiovascular disease is responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality in this population. Thus, effective means of mitigating cardiovascular complications of cancer therapies would have substantial impact on health. Here we will review novel issues in cardio-oncology and will give a broad overview of this emerging field.
