Tromboembolic recurrence parallel to the progression of breast cancer: Risk factors and central venous catheter thrombosis.

Thromboembolic disease (VTE) is a very important cause of morbidity and mortality in cancer patients, with a recurrence rate between 10% -17% of patients treated with anti-Vitamin K drugs and 6-9% of low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) (1).
