Cardiovascular disease following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation

Advances in hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) techniques and supportive care strategies have led to dramatic improvements in relapse mortality in patients with high-risk hematological malignancies. These improvements, however, conversely increase the risk of late-occurring non-cancer competing causes, mostly cardiovascular disease (CVD). HCT recipients have a significantly increased risk of CVD-specific mortality, including elevated incidence of coronary artery disease (CAD), cerebrovascular disease, and heart failure (HF) compared to age-matched counterparts. Accordingly, there is an urgent need to identify techniques for the detection of early CVD in HCT patients to inform early prevention strategies. Aerobic training (AT) is established as the cornerstone of primary and secondary disease prevention in multiple clinical settings, and may confer similar benefits in HCT patients at high-risk of CVD. The potential benefits of AT either before, immediately after, or in the months/years following HCT have received limited attention.
