Brief Summary:
This online-based, observational retrospective registry aims to (i) study the rate of cardiovascular events, encompassing venous thromboembolic and arterial events, in consecutive hospitalized patients with coronavirus (Covid19), (ii) investigate the prevalent use of thromboprophylaxis, (iii) describe the use of imaging tests for the detection of cardiovascular events in patients with Covid19. This will also facilitate and constitute the basis for the conduction of interventional thromboprophylaxis studies in patients with Covid19.
