Title: Treatment options for enormous carotid thrombus as a complication of SARS-CoV-2 infection


In SARS-CoV-2 positive patients with corresponding neurological symptoms the presence of carotid bifurcation macrothrombus should always be considered. Hypercoagulopathy caused by viral endotheliitis, systemic inflammation and cytokine storm play an important role in its development. Here we present two patients with treated with different treatment strategies because of carotid bifurcation macrothrombus as a complication of SARS-CoV-2 infection. In both cases, the soft macrothrombus was eliminated and the patients’ neurological condition were improved. Intravenous thrombolysis , acute carotid stenting with embolic filter protection device and mechanical thrombectomy with aspiration are effective treatments.
