Deep Venous Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism in Pancreatic Cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cancers of the pancreas, ovary and brain are strongly associated with thromboembolic events. Pancreatic cancer has a thromboembolic incidence rate of between 10 - 57%, higher than any other gastrointestinal malignancy. It has been observed that patient survival rate decreases when thromboembolism occur at or within 1 year of the original diagnosis Furthermore, patients with a recurrence of thromboembolism also have reduced survival rates. The mechanism responsible for the connection between thromboembolic events and pancreatic cancer patient survival rates are not well understood at this time. Here we report three cases of patients with pancreatic cancer associated with presentation of thromboembolic events, including pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis.
