what is cardio-Oncology

Cardio-Oncology is a highly specialised field of Cardiology which holistically cares for the heart of patients who are receiving cancer treatments. The first purpose is to monitor the heart and cardiovascular (CV) system in patients at all stages of their cancer therapy and help them to receive/complete their standard cancer treatment as much as possible with the least interruptions in their potentially life-saving cancer treatment. For more details, please see this article.

There has been an increase in the diagnosis of cancer in Australia and all around the world. This may be attributed to detection rates due to improved diagnostic methods.  On the bright side, cancer treatments have become more advanced and effective, leading to an increased number of cancer survivors. This comes at times, with the cost of complications, which may require interruptions in such effective and potentially life-saving cancer treatments. Complications of cancer treatment on the heart and cardiovascular system have been shown to be one of the major concerns due to which such effective treatment has been interrupted or even ceased.

Our role is:

  • Assist patients in risk stratification, to help identify if a patient is more likely to develop cardiac complications during treatment.
  • Consult patients considered high risk for developing cardiac complications prior to commencement of therapy and during their treatment.
  • Monitor the heart and detect early-stage cardiac complications, with the aim to reduce and minimise the chance of any complications causing short- or long-term cardiac conditions, some of which may be irreversible if not detected and optimally treated.
  • If complications occur, we are here to help treat the complications as much as possible. We work closely with our Oncology, Haematology, Surgical and General Practitioner colleagues to provide a holistic approach which allows for optimal use of targeted cardiac therapies to support the cardiovascular system of the patient while they undergo their cancer treatment.
  • Perform dedicated investigations of the heart to provide an accurate assessment of the cardiovascular system at all stages of treatment.

Cardiac complications are known to be one of the leading causes of non-cancer-related mortality. For this reason, the field of Cardio-Oncology is rapidly evolving and there is an increasing demand for highly specialised Cardio-Oncology specialists such as Dr Mohsen Habibian.
