abstract

  • Upper gastrointestinal malignancies are independently associated with the development of a new VTE, implicating tumor biology in VTE development. Even after adjusting for prognostic factors, we were unable to demonstrate an adverse impact on survival due to the new development of VTE amongst patients with active gastroesophageal malignancy receiving therapy.
