Acute myocardial infarction induced by lung cancer chemotherapy after radiation of left lung



Acute myocardial infarction induced by lung cancer chemotherapy after radiation of left lung



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 32(2): 265-267



A 58-year-old male with non-small cell lung cancer suffered acute myocardial infarction during carboplatin and gemcitabine administration. This case could be cured with percutaneous coronary intervention. The possible underlying mechanisms of infarction are discussed. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of coronary artery fibrosis demonstrated by intravascular ultrasound during carboplatin-based chemotherapy after radiation of the left lung.
