Link here to a story in the NCI Cancer Bulletin about cardiac side effects of sunitinib (Sutent) in patients with several types of cancer, including gastrointestinal stromal tumor.  "Most cardiac problems including hypertension were manageable and the majority of patients with heart failure resumed sunitinib therapy. Histories of coronary artery disease and/or hypertension were predictors of cardiovascular events."
