Neoplasia and the Heart: Pathological Review of Effects With Clinical and Radiological Correlation

The intersection of oncological and cardiovascular diseases is an increasingly recognized phenomenon. This recognition has led to the emergence of cardio-oncology as a true subspecialty. This field is not simply limited to primary cardiac tumors or complications of chemotherapeutic medications. Rather, it also encompasses metastatic cardiovascular complications¬†and secondary cardiovascular effects of the underlying neoplasia. This review will broadly cover primary¬†and metastatic cardiac neoplasms, as well as secondary cardiovascular effects of extracardiac neoplasia (e.g.,¬†amyloidosis, carcinoid valvulopathy, and chemotherapeutic cardiotoxicities).
