Coagulopathy and Plausible Benefits of Anticoagulation Among COVID-19 Patients.Curr Probl Cardiol. 2020 Sep; 45(9):100648.CP
The exceptional outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has let the scientific community to work closely and quickly learnt things in a very short period of time. This has let us recognize that thromboembolic complications are responsible for morbidity and mortality among the COVID-19 infected patients. Available data have suggested a possible multifactorial basis of these complications, and while efforts are being made to treat this infection, preventive measures with the use of systemic anticoagulation were quickly adopted to deal with this issue. Despite obvious benefits as appeared with the use of systemic anticoagulation, most of the emerged data were retrospective, hence raise questions on the possible interplay of the confounders as well as long-term benefits and safety of systemic anticoagulation.
