The purpose of this study is to compare plaque burden in the coronary and carotid arteries 5 years after adjuvant radiotherapy in women with right sided breast cancer vs left sided breast cancer.
||Time Perspective: Retrospective
||Pilot Study "A Study of Atherosclerosis in Patients After Radiation Treatment for Breast Cancer"
Primary Outcome Measures:
- to compare plaque burden in the coronary and carotid arteries after radiotherapy for breast cancer [ Time Frame: after 5 years of radiotherapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
| Study Start Date:
| Estimated Study Completion Date:
| Primary Completion Date:
||May 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
10 left sided breast cancer patients 10 right sided breast cancer patients
coronary artery evaluation
10 left sided breast cancer 10 right sided breast cancer
This study reviews case series of patients with a history of breast cancer treated with radiotherapy for at least five years. The study measures atherosclerosis by using coronary and carotid artery calcium scoring.
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years to 60 Years
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
breast cancer patients after radiation treatment
- women dx with ductal carcinoma in situ or breast cancer, stage 0 to stage IIIc, who received conservative surgery and radiotherapy at least 5 years ago
- less than or equal to age 60
- hx of coronary disease prior to tx of ductal carcinoma in situ or breast cancer
