Case Presentation: This study aimed to present the first case report of a Left Main Coronary Artery (LMCA) thrombosis due to COVID-19 infection in a middle-aged male with a mechanical valve on anticoagulant therapy and with an International Normalized Ratio (INR) within the therapeutic range.
Conclusions: The results suggested that the therapeutic INR range may need to be higher (about 3.5) during the acute phase of COVID-19 infection to prevent thrombotic events amongst patients with COVID-19 who are on anticoagulant therapy. However, further evidence is required to determine the target range for INR in patients with COVID-19 who are on anticoagulants prior to infection.
