Toxicity to the component parts of the cardiovascular system can lead to death or devastating irreparable damage to the normal functioning of the organ systems of the human body. Many industrial and pharmaceutical chemicals can exert toxic action on various components of the cardiovascular system. Chemicals that target the heart are classed as cardiotoxins and can exert their effects directly or indirectly. The dosage and exposure period influence the effects these chemicals may exert on the heart. Cardiotoxins can alter the heart functionally or structurally.
Cardiac toxicity is also caused due to cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy. Cardiology and Cardiac surgery conference serve as a novel platform for basic investigation, essential examination and a potential avenue for understanding the anticancer therapies and practices related to cardiovascular research and drug discovery. This focuses on cardio oncology advances that are helpful for researchers, drug developers, cardiologists, radiologists, surgical oncologists, internists, geneticists, epidemiologists, healthcare scientists, cardiac surgical equipment manufacturers.
