    What is your standard for cardiotoxicity monitoring with dual BRAF/MEK inhibitor therapy. How often are you obtaining EKGs/ECHOs?

    Baseline before or onset of therapy EKG & echo (if pt had a recent one with in several months- will obtain that info) if no echo on file- will send pt for baseline echo, but would not delay start of therapy
    2 weeks after start of therapy- EKG
    1 month after start of therapy- EKG
    2 months after start of therapy- Ekg & Echo if any susupicous sx, prior EKG changes or extensive cardiac history
    Typically if a patient is doing well we will then perform an EKG every 12 weeks in cadence with scans
    Echo q 6- 12 months
