of data from these trials, adjuvant trastuzumab has become the foundation of care for HER2- positive early breast cancer. Its use as an adjuvant treatment for a period of 1 year is currently an international standard of care in HER 2 - overexpressed localised breast cancer. It is generally well tolerated, with a low incidence of adverse effects [ 11 ] of which the most relevant is cardiotoxicity. It is typically manifested by an asymptomatic decrease in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and less often by clinical heart failure (HF) [ 12 ]. The mechanisms of

, 3 , 4 The patients treated with adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) of the breast or chest wall receive trastuzumab concurrently with RT. Treatment with trastuzumab results in a small to modest cardiotoxicity risk. 5 , 6 , 7 RT could be cardiotoxic as well. 8 , 9 , 10 Longterm effects of concomitant treatment with trastuzumab and RT have not yet been known, the most important of which is the issue of cardiotoxicity. Reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and elevated N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels represent early parameters of

Previous studies have shown that palladium has toxic effects on the kidney and liver, leads to deterioration of the general condition of animals, and could cause allergy in animals and humans. Considering the limited data about the influence of palladium on the cardiovascular system, the aim of our study was to evaluate the effects of palladium on the heart from available published data, and to compare the toxicity of inorganic and organic palladium compounds. Relevant studies for our review were identified from PubMed and Scopus databases. The search terms included »palladium «, »palladium compound«, »cardiotoxicity«, »toxicity«, »heart«, »myocardium«, »oxidative stress« and »myocardial enzyme«, as well as combinations of these terms. There were only two published studies with the primary purpose to investigate the effect of palladium on the cardiovascular system, while others registered the side-effects of palladium compounds on the heart. Palladium could cause arrhythmias, a drop in blood pressure, decrease of the heart rate, as well as death of experimental animals. Based on the presented data it seems that palladium does not express significant cardiac toxicity when it is bound in an organic compound. Further investigation of the effects of palladium on the heart is necessary for a clear picture of the nature and extent of its cardiac toxicity.
