This study investigated whether the pre-surgical plasma levels of TAT and F1 + 2 of patients undergoing major surgery for localized tumours could identify patients at higher risk of thrombosis, and how heparin prophylaxis affected in vivo coagulation after cancer surgery. We measured the pre- and post-operative levels of TAT, F1 + 2, total factor VII (FVIIt) and zymogen FVII (FVIIz) in 117 cancer patients, with and without heparin prophylaxis. The end points of this study were DVT, initially… CONTINUE READING
