Perioperative Anticoagulation in Patients with Cancer.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is a paucity of evidence for managing perioperative anticoagulation in patients with cancer. This review aims to provide clinicians who provide care for patients with cancer an overview of the available information and strategies needed to provide optimal care in a perioperative setting.
RECENT FINDINGS: There is new evidence available around the management of perioperative anticoagulation in patients with cancer. The new literature and guidance were analyzed and summarized in this review. Management of perioperative anticoagulation in individuals with cancer is a challenging clinical dilemma. The approach to managing anticoagulation requires clinicians to review both disease and treatment specific patient factors that can contribute to both thrombotic and bleed risks. A thorough patient-specific assessment is essential in ensuring patients with cancer receive appropriate care in the perioperative setting.
