STRESZCZENIE

Coexistence of cardiovascular diseases and cancer is more and more common in everyday practice. This is due to the aging of the population and the fact that most of the classic cardiovascular risk factors also predispose to cancer. During anti-cancer treatment, cardiovascular components may be damaged and eventually lead to acute coronary syndrome. The first part of the review article presents the pathophysiology, clinical presentation and key elements of the diagnostic process of this life-threatening condition in cancer patients.
