24 Hundley, 2012 Cardiac Toxicity


26 SEER-Medicare database in the USA showed a cohort treated from 2002-2007 to have a 5 year incidence of heart failure of 18% For early stage breast cancer, a patient is more likely to die of heart disease than cancer.

36 Durand, 2012 It is unknown when you stop these treatments- panel said they stay conservative and treat them on low dose ACEI or BB forever. Unless females become pregnant, switch ACE to BB. Treatment
