Cardiovascular Disease Risk Among Cancer Survivors
This is a substudy of the ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities) prospective cohort examining the association between cancer survivorship and incident cardiovascular disease (CVD). Cancer survivors had a 37% higher risk of incident CVD, 52% higher risk of heart failure, and less strong associations with stroke and atherosclerotic disease. The association between cancer survivorship and incident CVD was only minimally attenuated by accounting for traditional CV risk factors, suggesting nontraditional factors yet to be characterized such as inflammation or oxidative stress likely contribute to the bulk of the association.
