GONZALEZ MOREJON, Adel Eladio. Pediatric cardio-oncology as an emergent discipline in Cuba. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2019, vol.91, n.2, e735. ISSN 0034-7531.

The initial recognition of cardiac dysfunction caused by therapeutic strategies applied against cancer was performed in the sixth decade of the twentieth century. Cardio-Oncology is a new horizontal discipline aimed at the identification of patients at high risk for the development of cardiac toxicity. The effective performance inherent in Pediatric cardio-oncology lies in the appropriate selection of the diagnostic mean which can be capable of identifying and evaluating the indications of heart toxicity by detecting early changes in myocardial functionality after the application of anti-tumour therapies and, above all, the long-term prediction of these events in children survivors of cancer. Cardiac toxicity secondary to the therapies applied on these patients is a latent health problem in our country that requires the adoption of organisational measures conceived for their confrontation. It is pursued to contribute to the structuring of the comprehensive care corresponding to children with cancer and affected by cardiotoxicity in Cuba.
