    • Overview

      Early studies show that patients with COVID-19 appear to be at a higher risk for thrombotic complications like venous thromboembolism (VTE).  VTE is already among the leading causes of death from cardiovascular disease.  So, in addition to the traditional risk factors for VTE, practitioners must consider both the indirect effects as well as the direct effects of the COVID infection as they contribute to even greater risk of the consequences of VTE. This program will review the current literature and evidence regarding the frequency of VTE in patients with COVID, as well as the available guidance and evidence-based literature regarding the use of anticoagulation therapies in patients with COVID or patients recovering from COVID.
