Doctor warns emboli only found two years after mild COVID-19 infection

Dr Binita Kane, a UK respiratory specialist, shared the case on Twitter saying current management of long COVID needs a rethink to prevent cases being missed

A respiratory specialist took to Twitter last week to share the case of her formerly fit and healthy patient who was left “walking around” with extensive pulmonary emboli and right heart strain after a mild COVID-19 infection.

UK-based Dr Binita Kane shared the patient’s story, with his permission, to question whether the current management of long COVID was sufficient, or if more should be done to identify the known vascular and thrombotic complications of COVID-19.
