Drug Information available for: Heparin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of the prevalence of symptomatic or asymptomatic deep venous thrombosis in cancer patients with implantable device for central venous access with or without prophylaxis :
  2. Low molecular weight Heparin (LMWH) 2500 U anti-XA/day or Warfarine 1 mg/day during the first line of chemotherapy

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. - Detection of asymptomatic thrombosis related to implantable device estimated by a systematic echo-doppler. -
  2. - Frequency of other symptomatic venous thromboembolic events between 3 groups.
  3. Comparison of thrombosis prophylaxis by LMWH with warfarin at low dose
  4. -Costs in the 3 strategies
  5. - Tumoral response to chemotherapy in the 3 groups.
  6. - Overall survival in each group.
