I don’t know what’s more frightening, the fact that lymphoma patients who have had a auto SCT have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease or that you may already have cardiovascular disease and not know it.
“One of three lymphoma survivors with LVSD was asymptomatic and had peak oxygen consumption similar to of the general population.”
I am a long-term survivor of the blood cancer called multiple myeloma. Like lymphoma, this cancer is also a blood cancer but it is different from lymphoma. However I did undergo an autologus stem cell transplant in 12/95.
I developed chronic atrial fibrillation (a-fib) in the fall of 2010. This is what’s called a “late stage” side effect. It happened 15 years after my ASCT. Yes, it is ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD).
I’ve researched and supplement with and recommend these specific brands for their formula/efficacy, price and availability:
- CoQ10 health benefits
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids health benefits
- Resveritrol health benefits
- Curcumin health benefits
For questions about other integrative supplementation, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.
“Patients with lymphoma who have undergone autologous stem cell transplant (auto-HSCT) as adults may have six to seven times the risk for left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) compared with healthy individuals,…
Leading Cause of Death in Survivors
Cardiovascular disease accounts for the leading cause of noncancerous death among lymphoma survivors who have received stem cell transplants…
Heart failure can develop many years after therapy for lymphoma, with rates ranging from 2% to 9%. Anthracyclines, such as doxorubicin, and cardiac radiation therapy can contribute to increased cardiac risk…
LVSD occurred in 15.7% of lymphoma survivors, of whom 5.1% had asymptomatic LVSD. Compared with age- and sex-matched controls, lymphoma survivors had “substantially” increased LVSD risk…
