Background: coronavirus disease is characterized by hypercoagulation and requires treatment with anticoagulants. At the background of anticoagulant therapy, life-threatening soft tissue bleeding may occur.

Aim: was to evaluate the efficacy of transcatheter arterial embolization in patients with severe COVID-19 complicated by soft tissue bleeding.

Materials and methods: within the period from January 30, 2021 to February 18, 2022, transcatheter arterial embolization of soft tissue bleeding was performed in 25 patients with COVID-19-associated pneumonia.

Results: transcatheter arterial embolization was performed in 19 of 25 patients (76%). Postoperative mortality was 42%, and overall mortality was 40%. Fifteen patients (60%) were discharged in satisfactory condition.

Conclusions: severe soft tissue bleeding may occur in patients with coronavirus disease while treated with anticoagulants. The method of choice for treatment of these hemorrhages is transcatheter arterial embolization. (АНГИОЛОГИЯ.ру) - портал о диагностике и лечении заболеваний сосудистой системы
