Coronary Artery Disease in Young Women After Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer: The WECARE Study (JACC CardioOncology September 2021-3)
Coronary Artery Disease in Young Women After Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer: The WECARE Study
Radiation therapy (RT) for breast cancer increases risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). Women treated for left- vs right-sided breast cancer receive greater heart radiation exposure, which may further increase this risk. The risk of radiation-associated CAD specifically among younger breast cancer survivors is not well defined. The purpose of this study was to report CAD risk among participants in the Women’s Environmental Cancer and Radiation Epidemiology Study.
