|Venous Thromboembolism||Drug: low molecular weight heparin||Phase 3|
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is common and often fatal complication in patients with cancer.
Gastric cancer is the most frequent cancer in Korea.
The incidence of VTE would be increased in patients with gastric cancer, especially associated surgery.
However, the incidence and optimal prophylactic method associated with cancer surgery are not well studied in Asian patients.
Most Korean surgeon concerns regarding the increased postoperative bleeding associated with low molecular weight heparin(LMWH)prophylaxis.
The incidence and adverse event will be examined to define the optimal prophylactic method of VTE in surgical patients with gastric cancer.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||682 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Official Title:||Optimal Prophylactic Method of Venous Thromboembolism for Gastrectomy in Korean Patients|
|Study Start Date :||October 2011|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||January 2016|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||August 2017|
Experimental: intermittent pneumatic compression
another arm include intermittent pneumatic compression plus low molecular weight heparin
Drug: low molecular weight heparin
40mg 12 hours before surgery and 12 hours later surgery
- incidence of VTE [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after operation ]The incidence of VTE between mechanical method only group and mechnical plus LMWH group.
- Adverse event [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after operation ]The adverse event such as bleeding will also be compared.
