CV Risk in HL Survivors

Adults who had Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) as children are at increased risk of treatment-related cardiovascular (CV) events. In this study, 1,187 survivors of HL with a median age of 31.2 years were asked to complete a questionnaire that assessed their exercise behaviour.

The primary end point was incidence of any major CV event. After a median follow-up of 11.9 years, the cumulative incidence of any CV event was 12.2% at 10 years for those who reported 0 metabolic equivalent (MET) hours/week-1 compared with 5.2% for those reporting =9 MET hours/week-1. Multivariate analyses showed that more vigorous exercise resulted in a decreasing incidence of CV events. For more information, click here.
