This study assessed the cardiac function of 85 female breast cancer patients two years after chemotherapy to identify any alterations.
In addition, the cardioprotective role of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) was also evaluated. Results indicate that tissue Doppler imaging is more sensitive than conventional echocardiogram in the early diagnosis of cardiac dysfunction and ACEIs seem to have an important role in the prevention of cardiotoxicity.
