In this sense, we present the case of a 68 year old male with a history of mitral valve replacement that developed a devastating acute ischemic stroke in multiple vascular territories in the setting of mild COVID-19 infection despite adherence to therapeutic anticoagulation. It is likely that multiple mechanisms are involved in stroke related to COVID-19. Although, vascular inflammation and coagulopathy are emerging as features defining pathology underlying COVID-19. Given the failure of anticoagulants in the prevention of ischemic strokes in some cases, despite an optimize.. Read More»
