Abstract

The utilization of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased over the past several years, largely based on unsubstantiated benefits and aggressive marketing. However, the safety of nontraditional products is often overlooked and undocumented. Clinicians should become familiar with the potential risks of CAM and inform patients about associated adverse effects and/or serious drug interactions. This bibliography paper compiled key articles specific to CAM therapy and cardiovascular disease, which include primary literature and review articles. Based on the numerous published reports available on this topic, this bibliography, as part 2 of 2, focuses on the safety of CAM therapy in cardiovascular disease.
