Summary of "Why Cardio-Oncology Is Necessary Today - From a Viewpoint of the Tumor Internal Medicine."

Cancer and cardiovascular disease are 2 major disease of the Japanese cause of death. Both patients with cancer complicated with cardiovascular disease and patients with cancer developing cardiovascular disorder during cancer therapyare increasing recently. Because aging is the onset risk factor, as for these, it is predicted that the patients with both cancer and cardiovascular disease increase more and more by the arrival of the aging society. Recently, the new research field called cardiooncology( or onco-cardiology)has been established, and the cooperation of medical oncologist and cardiologist becomes indispensable.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)

A subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the study of neoplasms.

Histologic features include a high degree of cellularity, frequent mitotic figures, and a tendency for the cells to organize into sheets or form rosettes. Medulloblastoma have a high propensity to spread throughout the craniospinal intradural axis. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2060-1)
