OBJECTIVE To focus on the optimal management of thromboembolic complication in patients who have undergone chemotherapy with concomitant brain metastases and referred to a Division of Clinical Oncology. BACKGROUND Thromboembolic diseases are common events in cancer patients due to clotting activation by tumor cells. On the other hand, brain metastases are(More)
BACKGROUND Surgery (partial hepatic resection or orthotopic liver transplantation) remains the mainstay for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Unfortunately, most patients have HCC that cannot be removed either as a result of its size, multiple tumors, location, proximity to major vessels or ducts within the liver, and comorbidity, such as a not(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the incidence of prostate cancer (PCa) in Sicily in patients who entered an early detection protocol. METHODS From February 2002 to February 2004, 16,298 subjects aged 40-75 entered the protocol. Patients with suspicious DRE, PSA>10 ng/ml, PSA<or=2.5 ng/ml, from 2.6 to 4 ng/ml or from 4.1 to 10 ng/ml with F/T PSA of <or=15%, <or=20%(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the role of residual vein thrombosis (RVT) to assess the optimal duration of anticoagulants in patients with cancer who have deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower limbs. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with active cancer and a first episode of DVT treated with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) for 6 months were eligible. Patients(More)
BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolism (VTE) and brain metastases (MTS) are significant clinical problems in the cancer patient population. Brain MTS and deep vein thrombosis are life-threatening conditions because of the risk of fatal endocranic hypertension and pulmonary embolism. Low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is a major treatment for cancer patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The possible occurrence of venous thrombosis in tumor-bearing patients had already been reported by Trousseau in the past century. The blood clotting alterations in cancer-bearing patients can cause Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), especially in those patients with disseminated metastases. Anti-tumor chemotherapy can increase the risk of thrombosis.(More)
