Cardiac Toxicity

Is damage to the heart by harmful chemicals. As part of your treatment, you may be given toxins (drugs) to kill cancer cells and due to that the normal cells in and around your heart can also be killed. Medications that may commonly cause cardiotoxicity, or cardiomyopathy, are called anthracyclines. Anthracyclines may be used to treat leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, breast cancer, and sarcoma.
