The COVID-19 global pandemic has severely threatened public respiratory health and medical services. Coagulation disorders, especially pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE), has proved to be a complication in severe COVID-19 patients, with the incidence of PTE causing poor clinical outcome and increased fatality.

It is important that healthcare providers recognize that patients with COVID-19 are at increased risk of PTE, and ensure that appropriate prophylaxis is administered to the appropriate patients, and that they effectively manage PTE when it does occur.

The mechanism of PTE in patients with coronavirus pneumonia consists of endothelial injury, activated platelet, cytokine storm, and a suppressed fibrinolytic system. Early prophylaxis, antiviral therapy, anticoagulation, and supportive treatment are beneficial to COVID-19 patients.

In this review, the authors summarize the harmful effects of that coronavirus pneumonia and highlight the clinical relationship between PTE and coronavirus infection. Potential mechanisms and prophylaxis and therapeutic measures are also discussed.
