Abstract

Patients with Coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19) commonly develop thrombosis complication. The hypercoagulable state cause arterial and venous thrombosis lead to high morbidity and mortality. The acute limb ischemia is the presentation of arterial thrombosis which occur during COVID-19 pandemic situation. The successful rate of revascularization was trend to lower than expected with high amputation rate and mortality for these patients. We report a case of a 58-year-old woman who developed acute thrombosis of popliteal artery and deep vein thrombosis after treatment of COVID-19 pneumonia. The patient had successful revascularization by endovascular mechanical thrombectomy with intraoperative thrombolysis and well recovered post operation.
