Thromboembolic complications after perioperative chemotherapy in women with early breast cancer: a European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Breast Cancer Cooperative Group study.

PURPOSE AND METHODS: Data from a randomized phase III trial in early breast cancer, comparing surgery followed by one short intensive course of perioperative fluorouracil, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide ( FAC) versus surgery alone, were analyzed for the occurrence of thromboembolic complications within 6 weeks after surgery. RESULTS: Twenty-seven of 1,292 patients assigned to the perioperative chemotherapy treatment arm (2.1%) and 10 of 1,332 patients on observation (0.8%) developed thromboembolic events (P = .004). The frequency of thromboembolic complications was higher among postmenopausal women compared with premenopausal women (2.0% v 0.6%, P = .003). Patients who had mastectomy had a higher frequency of thromboembolic disease than those who had tumorectomy (2.3% v 0.7%, P < .001). Three deaths occurred after pulmonary embolism, all of them in the perioperative chemotherapy treatment arm. CONCLUSION: These results suggest a contributing role of perioperative chemotherapy to thromboembolic disease, especially in postmenopausal women and women undergoing mastectomy. Antithrombosis prophylaxis should be considered in the case of adjuvant perioperative chemotherapy.[1]
