    Background: SARS-CoV-2 causes COVID-19 disease. It was identified in December 2019 and rapidly evolved into a pandemic. During the outbreak of COVID-19, researches demonstrated its effect on many systems, including the nervous system. In our clinic, we have reported an impact of SARS-CoV-2, causing the ischaemic stroke MESHD stroke HP.Case Report: A 62-year-old Sudanese male TRANS with some comorbidities brought to the A&E with fever HP fever MESHD, chest symptoms MESHD, and acute evolving left-sided hemiplegia HP hemiplegia MESHD power grade 0/5 MRCS with left upper motor neuron facial palsy HP facial palsy MESHD. Investigations: CT brain: right middle cerebral artery MCA infarction MESHD. CT- chest: bilateral ground-glass appearance. COVID-19 Test was positive. elevated D-dimer and C-reactive protein.Discussion: A retrospective study of data from the COVID-19 outbreak in China showed that the incidence of stroke HP stroke MESHD among hospitalized patients was approximately 5%. The fact that COVID-19 is an acute inflammatory condition associated with an increased incidence of fatty plaques formation, injury of the vascular wall, and hypercoagulability HP hypercoagulability MESHD, causing brain infarct MESHD can be a reasonable hypothesis.ConclusionPatients with COVID-19 are at increased risk of thrombo-embolization MESHD, leading to arterial and venous cerebrovascular accident MESHD. This case report enhances the importance of further studies to clarify the relationship between stroke HP stroke MESHD and COVID-19.

    Background:Tocilizumab, an IL-6 receptor antagonist has been used in patients with Coronavirus Disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) as an anti-cytokine agent. IL-6 also plays a complex role in hemostasis and thrombosis MESHD. We observed a transient elevation of D-dimer in our patients who received Tocilizumab, which triggered the current study.Methods:A retrospective hospital-based cohort analysis of patients with confirmed COVID-19 who received Tocilizumab during the study period of 03/15/2020 to 05/20/2020. We retrieved demographic, clinical and laboratory data, we excluded patients who were receiving therapeutic anticoagulation therapy prior to Tocilizumab administration.  Descriptive analysis was performed, the cause of death MESHD and trends of D-dimer and inflammatory markers were studied. Results: Out of the 436 confirmed COVID 19 patients admitted during the study period, 24 met the inclusion criteria. Their median age TRANS was 47.5 years old. They were 18 males TRANS and 6 females TRANS; 15 patients survived, and 9 expired. Of the group that survived, 12 received therapeutic anticoagulation. Of the 7 patients who did not receive therapeutic anticoagulation, 4 expired, 1 from sepsis HP sepsis MESHD and 3 probably from thromboembolic complications MESHD, compared to 5 deaths in the 17 patients who received therapeutic anticoagulation with 4 dying from sepsis HP sepsis MESHD, and one possibly from thromboembolic complications MESHD.Conclusions:The interplay between IL-6, IL-6 receptor antagonist and venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP are complex. We observed a transient elevation of D-dimer in COVID-19 patients who received Tocilizumab, and a trend toward increased death secondary to thromboembolism HP thromboembolism MESHD. This observation is novel and highlights the potential thrombophilic side effects of Tocilizumab.

    Objective. The study aimed to validate the original Caprini score and its modifications considering coronavirus disease MESHD (COVID-19) as a severe prothrombotic condition MESHD in patients admitted to the hospital with confirmed infection TRANS infection MESHD. Methods. The relevant data were extracted from the electronic medical records with the implemented Caprini score and were evaluated retrospectively. The score was calculated twice: by the physician at the admission and by the investigator at discharge or after death. The second calculation at discharge, considered additional risk factors that occurred during inpatient treatment. Besides the original Caprini score (a version of 2005), the modified version added the elevation of D-dimer and specific scores for COVID-19 as follows: 2 points for asymptomatic TRANS, 3 points for symptomatic and 5 points for symptomatic infection MESHD with positive D-dimer, were evaluated in a retrospective manner. The primary endpoint was symptomatic venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP ( VTE MESHD) confirmed by appropriate imaging testing or dissection. The secondary endpoint included the unfavorable outcome as a combination of symptomatic VTE MESHD, admission to the intensive care unit, the requirement for invasive mechanical ventilation, and death MESHD. The association of eight different versions of the Caprini score with outcomes was evaluated. Results. Totally 168 patients (83 males TRANS and 85 females TRANS at the age TRANS of 58.3{+/-}12.7 years old) were admitted to the hospital between April 30 and May 29, 2020, and were discharged or died up to the time of data analysis. The original Caprini score varied between 2-12 (5.4{+/-}1.8) at the admission and between 2-15 (5.9{+/-}2.5) at discharge or death MESHD. The presence of the virus increased these scores and resulted in an increased score with the maximal value for those including COVID-19 points (10.0{+/-}3.0). Patients received prophylactic (2.4%), intermediate (76.8%), or therapeutic (20.8%) doses of enoxaparin. Despite this, the symptomatic VTE MESHD was detected in 11 (6.5%) and unfavorable outcomes in 31 (18.5%) patients. The Caprini score of all eight versions demonstrated a significant association with VTE MESHD with the highest predictability for the original scale when assessed at discharge. Supplementation of the original score by elevated D-dimer improved predictability only at the admission. Four versions of the Caprini score calculated at the admission had a significant correlation with the unfavorable outcome with the minor advantages of specific COVID-19 points. Conclusion. The study identified a significant correlation between the Caprini score and the risk of VTE MESHD or unfavorable outcomes in COVID-19 patients. All models, including specific COVID-19 scores, showed high predictability with minor differences.

    Objective: To investigate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of Coronavirus Disease MESHD of 2019 (COVID-19) patients complicated with venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP ( VTE MESHD) Method: We performed a comprehensive literature search of several databases to find studies that assessed VTE MESHD in hospitalized COVID-19 patients with a primary outcome of all-cause mortality and secondary outcomes of intensive care unit (ICU) admission and mechanical ventilation. We also evaluated the clinical characteristics of VTE MESHD sufferers. Objective: To investigate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of Coronavirus Disease MESHD of 2019 (COVID-19) patients complicated with venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP ( VTE MESHD) Method: We performed a comprehensive literature search of several databases to find studies that assessed VTE MESHD in hospitalized COVID-19 patients with a primary outcome of all-cause mortality and secondary outcomes of intensive care unit (ICU) admission and mechanical ventilation. We also evaluated the clinical characteristics of VTE MESHD sufferers. Results: Eight studies have been included with a total of 1237 pooled subjects. Venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP was associated with higher mortality (RR 2.48 (1.35, 4.55), p=0.003; I2 5%, p=0.35) after we performed sensitivity SERO analysis, ICU admission (RR 2.32 (1.53, 3.52), p<0.0001; I2 80%, p <0.0001), and mechanical ventilation need (RR 2.73 (1.56, 4.78), p=0.0004; I2 77%, p=0.001). Furthermore, it was also associated to male TRANS gender TRANS (RR 1.21 (1.08, 1.35), p=0.0007; I2 12%, p=0.34), higher white blood SERO cells count (MD 1.24 (0.08, 2.41), 0.04; I2 0%; 0.26), D-dimer (MD 4.49 (2.74, 6.25), p<0.00001; I2 67%, p=0.009) and LDH levels (MD 70.93 (19.33, 122.54), p<0.007; I2 21%, p=0.28). In addition, after sensitivity SERO analysis was conducted, VTE MESHD also associated with older age TRANS ( MD MESHD 2.79 (0.06, 5.53), p=0.05; I2 25%, p=0.24) and higher CRP levels (MD 2.57 (0.88, 4.26); p=0.003; I2 0%, p=0.96). Conclusion: Venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP in COVID-19 patients was associated with increased mortality, ICU admission, and mechanical ventilation requirement. Male TRANS gender TRANS, older age TRANS, higher levels of biomarkers, including WBC count, D-Dimer, and LDH were also being considerably risks for developing VTE MESHD in COVID-19 patients during hospitalization. Conclusion: Venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP in COVID-19 patients was associated with increased mortality, ICU admission, and mechanical ventilation requirement. Male TRANS gender TRANS, older age TRANS, higher levels of biomarkers, including WBC count, D-Dimer, and LDH were also being considerably risks for developing VTE MESHD in COVID-19 patients during hospitalization.

    COVID-19 predisposes to venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP and there are multiple data regarding high incidence of venous thrombosis HP venous thrombosis MESHD in critical COVID-19 patients, however reports on this complication in less severe patients are not widely available. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of deep-vein thrombosis MESHD ( DVT MESHD) in patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 and to assess the prevalence SERO of DVT MESHD with lung computerized tomography (lung CT) exams, clinical information and lab data. This study examined 75 consecutive patients with moderate to severe COVID-19, with specific exclusions. METHODS Almost all patients (pts) admitted to our hospital in the first half of May underwent comprehensive vein ultrasonography. 75 pts ( aged TRANS 27-92 y, median - 63 y, 36 males TRANS and 39 females TRANS) with moderate to severe COVID-19 were included in our study. RESULTS Spontaneous echo contrast (decreased blood SERO velocity and blood SERO stasis) was detected in common femoral veins in 53 pts (70.7%). DVT MESHD was found in 15 pts (20%). The vast majority of those with DVT MESHD (13 pts, 86.7%) had thrombi only in calf veins and ileofemoral thrombosis MESHD was detected in 2 pts with DVT MESHD (13.3%). There was no significant observed difference between DVT MESHD and non- DVT MESHD patients with respect to age TRANS, underlying diseases, lung CT scores and SpaO2 at admission. There was also no significant observed difference between DVT MESHD and non- DVT MESHD patients with respect to both "time from symptoms onset TRANS to admission" and with respect to the majority of lab data. However, a significant difference was observed in D-dimer level (1.87 +/- 1.62 vs 0.51 +/- 0,4 mcg/mL p<0.0001) and C-reactive protein (116.9 +/- 83,6 and 65.1 +/- 64.98 mg/L, p = 0.014) for patients with DVT MESHD and patients without DVT MESHD respectably (Receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve analysis revealed that the level of D-dimer >/= 0.69 mcg/mL is the predictor of DVT MESHD with a sensitivity SERO of 76.9%, a specificity of 77.6%, p < 0.001 (AUC area under curve = 0.7944). Logistic regression confirmed that D-dimer is an independent predictor of DVT MESHD and patients with D-dimer >/= 0.69 mcg/mL have odds ratio (OR) of developing DVT MESHD = 5.1 (confidence interval [CI] 1.9 - 13.5)). CONCLUSION Patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 show high incidence of DVT MESHD, indicating that moderate to severe COVID-19 patients may require an early administration of anticoagulation therapy as part of their treatment. Such therapy may be continued after hospital discharge. Based on these findings, these patients may also require a follow-up with vein ultrasonography after recovery to rule out DVT MESHD.

    Background: The novel coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak presents a significant threat to global health. A better understanding of patient clinical profiles is essential to drive efficient and timely health service strategies. In this study, we aimed to identify risk factors for a higher susceptibility to symptomatic presentation with COVID-19 and a transition to severe disease. Methods: We analysed data on 2756 patients admitted to Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust between 1st January and 23rd April 2020. We compared differences in characteristics between patients designated positive for COVID-19 and patients designated negative on hospitalisation and derived a multivariable logistic regression model to identify risk factors for predicting risk of symptomatic COVID-19. For patients with COVID-19, we used univariable and multivariable logistic regression to identify risk factors associated with progression to severe disease defined by: 1) admission to the hospital AICU, 2) the need for mechanical ventilation, 3) in-hospital mortality, and 4) at least one measurement of elevated D-dimer (equal or superior to 1,000 ug/L) indicative of increased risk of venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP. Results: The patient population consisted of 1148 COVID-19 positive and 1608 COVID-19 negative patients. Age TRANS, sex, self-reported ethnicity, C-reactive protein, white blood SERO cell count, respiratory rate, body temperature, and systolic blood SERO pressure formed the most parsimonious model for predicting risk of symptomatic COVID-19 at hospital admission. Among 1148 patients with COVID-19, 116 (10.1%) were admitted to the AICU, 71 (6.2%) required mechanical ventilation, 368 (32.1%) had at least one record of D-dimer levels [≥]1,000 g/L, and 118 patients died. In the multivariable logistic regression, age TRANS (OR = 0.953 per 1 year, 95% CI: 0.937-0.968) C-reactive protein (OR = 1.004 per 1 mg/L, 95% CI: 1.002-1.007), and white blood SERO cell counts (OR = 1.059 per 109/L, 95% CI: 1.010-1.111) were found to be associated with admission to the AICU. Age TRANS (OR = 0.973 per 1 year, 95% CI: 0.955-0.990), C-reactive protein (OR = 1.003 per 1 mg/L, 95% CI: 1.000-1.006) and sodium (OR = 0.915 per 1 mmol/L, 0.868-0.962) were associated with mechanical ventilation. Age TRANS (OR = 1.023 per 1 year, 95% CI: 1.004-1.043), CRP (OR = 1.004 per 1 mg/L, 95% CI: 1.002-1.006), and body temperature (OR = 0.723 per 1oC, 95% CI: 0.541-0.958) were associated with elevated D-dimer. For mortality, we observed associations with age TRANS (OR = 1.060 per 1 year, 95% CI: 1.040-1.082), female TRANS sex (OR = 0.442, 95% CI: 0.442, 95% CI: 0.245-0.777), Asian ethnic background (OR = 2.237 vs White ethnic background, 95% CI: 1.111-4.510), C-reactive protein (OR = 1.004 per 1 mg/L, 95% CI: 1.001-1.006), sodium (OR = 1.038 per 1 mmol/L, 95% CI: 1.001-1.006), and respiratory rate (OR = 1.054 per 1 breath MESHD/min, 95% CI: 1.024-1.087). Conclusion: Our analysis suggests there are several demographic, clinical and laboratory findings associated with a symptomatic presentation of COVID-19. Moreover, significant associations between patient deterioration were found with age TRANS, sex and specific blood SERO markers, chiefly C-reactive protein, and could help early identification of patients at risk of poorer prognosis. Further work is required to clarify the extent to which our observations are relevant beyond current settings.

    Background: Coronavirus Disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) outbroke in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and spread rapidly. Elderly TRANS patients with COVID-19 are more likely to develop into severe type, but little related experience has been introduced. Case presentation: An 82-year-old female TRANS patient living in Wuhan, China was referred because of fever HP fever MESHD, dry cough MESHD cough HP and chest distress for a week. Clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 was considered, confirmed by viral nucleic acid detection. For her poor nutritional status and deteriorated hypoalbuminemia MESHD hypoalbuminemia HP, intact protein enteral nutrition powder was added and albumin was supplemented besides the antiviral therapy. Her fever HP fever MESHD gradually subsided with the alleviation of related symptoms. During her hospitalization, D-dimer level elevated with ultrasonographically detected thromboembolism HP thromboembolism MESHD in bilateral gastrocnemius veins, and low molecular weight heparin was thereby administrated for the prevention of pulmonary embolism HP pulmonary embolism MESHD. Conclusions: The experience of this case suggested that the timely screening and intervention of malnutrition HP malnutrition MESHD and venous thromboembolism MESHD thromboembolism HP are crucial issues to be concerned when treating elderly TRANS patients with severe COVID-19 besides the routine antiviral therapy.

    Background: Early studies of patients with COVID-19 have demonstrated markedly dysregulated coagulation MESHD and a high risk of morbid arterial and venous thrombotic MESHD events. While elevated levels of blood SERO neutrophils and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have been described in patients with COVID-19, their potential role in COVID-19-associated thrombosis MESHD remains unknown. Objectives: To elucidate the potential role of hyperactive neutrophils and NET release in COVID-19-associated thrombosis MESHD. Patients/Methods: This is a retrospective, case-control study of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 who developed thrombosis MESHD (n=11), as compared with gender TRANS- and age TRANS-matched COVID-19 patients without clinical thrombosis MESHD (n=33). In addition to capturing clinical data, we measured remnants of NETs (cell-free DNA, myeloperoxidase-DNA complexes, and citrullinated histone H3) and neutrophil-derived S100A8/A9 (calprotectin) in patient sera. Results: The majority of patients (9/11) were receiving at least prophylactic doses of heparinoids at the time thrombosis MESHD was diagnosed. As compared with controls, patients with COVID-19-associated thrombosis MESHD had significantly higher blood SERO levels of markers of NETs (cell-free DNA, myeloperoxidase-DNA complexes, citrullinated histone H3) and neutrophil activation (calprotectin). The thrombosis MESHD group also had higher levels of D-dimer, CRP, ferritin, and platelets, but not troponin or neutrophils. Finally, there were strong associations between markers of hyperactive neutrophils (calprotectin and cell-free DNA) and D-dimer. Conclusion: Elevated levels of neutrophil activation and NET formation in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 are associated with higher risk of morbid thrombotic complications MESHD. These observations underscore the need for urgent investigation into the potential relationship between NETs and unrelenting thrombosis MESHD in COVID-19.
