Common Vascular Toxicities of Cancer Therapies

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The introduction of targeted agents into modern cancer therapy pursued the goal of molecularly more specific, and thereby more effective and safer, therapies. Paradoxically, however, several toxicities were brought to greater attention, among these not only cardiac but also vascular toxicities. The latter reach far beyond venous thromboembolism and include a broad spectrum of presentations based on the vascular territories and pathomechanisms involved, including abnormal vascular reactivity, acute thrombosis, or accelerated atherosclerosis. This article provides an overview of the most common presentations and their management strategies.
