The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has become a global pandemic with a high mortality rate. There has been emerging evidence regarding the presence of thrombosis in patients with severe COVID-19 infection. In addition, prognosis of COVID patients, once they are complicated with DVT or fatal pulmonary emboli, will also significantly decline. Hence, understanding the pathomechanism and prompt treatment of thromboembolism is important in improving the outcome in COVID-19 patients. Prophylaxis anticoagulant was proposed for all hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The aim of this article is to review the current literature regarding pathomechanism, risk assessment, diagnosis, and management of VTE.
