PARADA-GUZMAN, Melvin; SIERRA, Miguel A.; OLIVARES-CRUZ, Sandra  y  BALDERRAMA, Carlos A.. Frequency and risk factors of deep venous thrombosis associated with COVID-19 patients. Rev. mex. angiol. [online]. 2022, vol.50, n.1, pp.14-19.  Epub 02-Mayo-2022. ISSN 2696-130X.


Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is common in patients with COVID-19 infection, characterized by an inflammatory response that leads to severe manifestations and can be considered a risk factor for thrombosis.


To evaluate the frequency of DVT risk factors in COVID-19 patients in the Hospital General de Mexico.

Material and methods:

Retrospective study, which consisted on the review of interconsultations for thrombosis, analyzing risk factors in 83 patients.


The left lower extremity was the most commonly affected in both groups. We found a highest Wells score in non-COVID group, 75%. In COVID positive patients, diabetes mellitus and inmobility frequencies were 0.19 and 0.20 respectively.


The risk factors most frequently associated with COVID-19 patients and thrombosis were cancer, immobility and obesity, so we must establish an early antithrombotic prophylaxis in this group of patients.

Palabras llave : Deep vein thrombosis; COVID-19; Risk factors; Third level of care.
