Bleeding and thrombosis in cancer patients

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    Cancer patients can suffer both bleeding and thrombotic complications which can have effects ranging from needing to have new or different therapies to being fatal. Bleeding complications can be due to therapy-related causes such as drug-induced thrombocytopenia or due to the cancer itself such as found in acute promyelocytic leukemia. The same dynamic holds true for thrombotic complications. This chapter will review both bleeding and thrombotic complications of cancer and its treatment focusing on pathogenesis, recognition, and treatment.
