No Venous Thromboembolism Increase Among Transgender Female Patients Remaining on Estrogen for Gender Affirming Surgery

JCEM: The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism by Aki  Kozato et al, on January 8, 2021

Background: Both surgery and exogenous estrogen use are associated with increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). However, it is not known whether estrogen hormone therapy (HT) exacerbates the surgery-associated risk among transgender and gender non-binary (TGNB) individuals.

Conclusion: Peri-operative VTE was not a significant risk in a large, homogenously treated cohort of TGNB patients independent of whether or not hormone therapy was suspended prior to surgery.
