Massive pulmonary embolism complicating mild Covid 19 pneumonia: Successful systemic thrombolysis using rt-PA in an elderly patient: A case report

CONCLUSION: This case highlight the importance of considering thromboembolic complications despite the severity of the associated SARS-cov-2 pneumonia and the role of prophylactic anticoagulation for Covid-19 patients hospitalized or not.PMID:34868570 | PMC:PMC8626156 | DOI:10.1016/j.amsu.2021.103090

CONCLUSION: The risk of DVT could be reduced through anticoagulation, and administration of steroids and convalescent plasma. The specific significance of the individual components has not yet been clarified. Since bleeding is a rarely observed in SARS-CoV-2 infections, a generous indication for anticoagulation seems to be justified.PMID:34706375 | DOI:10.1055/a-1630-8163

Conclusions: We report a 100% occurrence of venous thromboembolism in critically ill patients supported by venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2-related acute respiratory distress syndrome using CT scan imaging despite a high target and close monitoring of anticoagulation.
