Since the emergence of the disease, severe Covid infections have been associated with a risk of severe and dangerous coagulopathy. And in recent weeks two vaccines have been linked to a rare increased risk of clotting, in particular cerebral sinus venous thrombosis (CSVT), which requires urgent and specific treatment.

This webinar will tell the story of our understanding of these coagulation disorders, looking at the causes, risks, diagnosis, and treatments.

Our guests will be Marcel Levi, Chief Scientific Officer of the Netherlands and former UCLH CEO, Dr Sue Pavord, Consultant Haematologist at Oxford University Hospitals, and Dr Andy Retter, Critical Care Consultant at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.
