Cancer-associated thrombosis

COVID-19 may predispose to both venous and arterial thromboembolism due to excessive inflammation, hypoxia, immobilisation and diffuse intravascular coagulation. Many patients receiving antithrombotic therapy for thrombotic disease may develop COVID-19, which can have implications for choice and dosing of antithrombotic therapy including direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs).
