PO-25 - FATCAT: an observational cohort study investigating fractal dimension (df) as a biomarker of thrombogenicity in cancer associated thrombosis during chemotherapy for lung cancer.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprising deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are common complications in patients with cancer, affecting up to 18% of patients. VTE risk is increased by surgery and disease progression, whilst chemotherapy further increases risk up to 7-fold compared to patients without cancer. VTE contributes… (More)
