American expert interested in exchange with Cuban cardio-oncology

HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 13 (ACN) American PhD. Stephen Casselli, Executive Director of the International Society of Cardio Oncology, expressed in Havana the interest of scientific exchange with Cuban colleagues in this branch of medicine.

The renowned expert, who participates in the 3rd International Symposium on Cardiooncology, held from Thursday to Saturday at Havana´s TRYP Habana Libre Hotel, described as excellent the professional level of Cuban doctors, with whom he wishes to start collaboration and research.
He also praised the treatment procedures in the specialty, and the issues discussed on the first day of the event such as pain management and cardiovascular rehabilitation in cancer patients.
Casselli explained that during the last 10 years, cardio-oncology has started to develop taking into account that heart disease and cancer are the main causes of death in the world.
He clarified that as the number of survivors to advanced stages and metastasis of the disease has increased, the risk of suffering from cardiovascular disorders associated with treatments for malignant tumors has also increased.
Cancer treatment is associated with a medium- and long-term increase in the incidence of heart failure, ischemic heart disease, hypertension, arrhythmias, thrombotic events and peripheral vascular disease.
The International Society of Cardiooncology focuses on research, education and effective collaboration between cardiology and oncology clinicians and researchers, who offer effective cancer therapies and prevent cardiovascular complications.
The 3rd International Symposium on Cardiooncology is attended by more than 200 Cuban representatives and other guests from Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and the United States.
