Deep Venous Thrombosis in Non-severe COVID-19 Patients Hospitalized for a Neurovascular Pathology


Severe SARS-CoV-2 infection, responsible of COVID-19, is accompanied by many venous thromboembolic events. Antithrombotic treatment is the cornerstone of management of many neurovascular diseases (NVDs) and the benefit-risk ratio is crucial to avoid hemorrhagic complications. Therefore, in non-severe COVID-19 patients affected by NVDs, the diagnostic of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is challenging. Using bedside Doppler ultrasonography (DUS) of lower limbs, this study investigated the rates of DVT in these patients in stroke unit.
