To the Editor We read with interest the article by Qian et al, who reported thyroid cancer incidence among children in the United States.

The increase in large-tumor (>2 cm) thyroid cancer is not evidence of a ...

;o LR Abstract Thromboembolism (TE) is a well-recognized complication of pediatric cancer and can lead to mortality and excess morbidity. There is conflicting evidence about the effectiveness and safety of thromboprophylaxis in children.

The primary outcomes were objectively proven TE and major bleeding. The network meta-analysis included comparisons of multiple alternatives simultaneously: antithrombin (AT) replacement, low molecular weight hepar...
