Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis
A prothrombotic state is reported with severe COVID-19 infection, which can manifest in venous and arterial thrombotic events. Coagulopathy is reflective of more severe disease and anticoagulant thromboprophylaxis is recommended in hospitalized patients. However, the prevalence of thrombosis on the intensive care unit (ICU) remains unclear, includi...
To reduce inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) related complications, retrieval is recommended whenever possible. Nevertheless, IVCF retrieval rates remain lower than expected, likely due to insufficient follow-up after placement. We evaluated the value of a structured program designed to follow patients by the interventional radiology team up to 5 mon...
Hintergrund Im Rahmen von Sepsis und septischem Schock kommt es aufgrund der engen Verflechtung von Gerinnung und Entzündung häufig zu einer Koagulopathie. Die sepsisinduzierte Koagulopathie (SIC) stellt hierbei die schwerste, potenziell fatale Form dar. Aufgrund fehlender Evidenz beschränken sich die aktuellen Sepsis-Leitlinien auf Empfehlungen zu...

In patients with end stage renal disease and atrial fibrillation (AF), undergoing chronic dialysis, direct oral agents are contraindicated and warfarin does not fully prevent embolic events while increasing the bleeding risk. The high hemorrhagic risk represents the main problem in this population. Aim of the study was to estimate the safety and ef...

The association between atrial fibrillation (AF) and thromboembolic (TE) complications in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) recipients is controversial, and there is paucity of large-scale data evaluating the impact of AF on early outcomes after device implantation. Using the National Inpatient Sample, we identified hospitalizations where patie...

A 23-year-old man with a known history of Crohn's disease (CD), who underwent an ileocaecal resection for localized disease activity three months ago, suffered from persistent fever with chills since 10 days. Despite the empirical antibiotic therapy that was started, his fever remained. A computed tomography (CT) angiography of the thorax and abdom...

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2), a novel coronavirus, originated as an epidemic respiratory illness in Wuhan, China. COVID-19 eventually spread to almost all countries and has now been declared a global pandemic disease by the World Health Organisation. A plethora of research has explored the dynamics of different clini...

Thromboembolic events contribute to morbidity and mortality in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). As a result, thromboprophylaxis using low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is universally recommended for hospitalized patients based on multiple guidelines. However, ethnic differences with respect to thrombogenicity have been reported and the incide...
• COVID-19 is associated with an increased risk of thrombotic complications. • COVID-19 phenotype results from inflammation, complement and coagulation interplay. • D-dimer, thrombocytopenia and IL-6 are promising markers of COVID-19 severity. • Anticoagulative therapy in COVID-19 needs further study.
