BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolism(VTE) is a significant, common comorbidity of cancer patients associated with increased mortality. We evaluated the incidence and risk factors for developing a new VTE in ambulatory cancer patients while they were receiving therapy for advanced cancer. We also examined the affect of developing a new VTE on survival for patients with gastroesophageal malignancies. METHODS All patients with non-hematologic malignancies who were treated using investigator… CONTINUE READING
