Reactions 1680, p123 - 2 Dec 2017 Moderate impairment of cardiac contractibility: case report In a single institution long-term prospective study, a patient [age and sex not stated] was described, who developed moderate impairment of cardiac contractibility during treatment with doxorubicin [duration of treatment to reaction onset not stated]. The patient, who was newly diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, started receiving chemotherapy with ABVD regimen that included IV doxorubicin 25 mg/m for days 1 and 15. Subsequently, the patient developed moderate impairment of cardiac contractibility. The patient was treated with carvedilol and a favourable outcome was achieved. Author comment: "The cumulative dose of doxorubicin raises concern on cardiac contractility in the long term, but if [radiotherapy] is avoided the potentiation of this late effect is reduced." "Other incidental complications were . . .moderate impairment of cardiac contractibility (1 patient treated with carvedilol with favorable outcome)". Zubizarreta PA, et al.
