  • Prostate cancer hormone treatment heart risks
  • 2:31
  • Recent studies had suggested that hormone-blocking therapy for prostate cancer could raise the risk of fatal heart attacks. Paul Nguyen, MD and Toni Choueiri, MD, discuss their findings that androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) makes no difference to the rate of cardiovascular deaths in men receiving ADT compared with those who didn't. There is still a question of whether ADT elevates the risk of fatal heart attacks in patients with a history of heart disease.
