In this Editor's choice, we highlight last year's papers from Thrombosis and Haemostasis as well as from its open access companion journal THOpen, which found most resonance among our readers' community, holding promise for mechanistic understanding and improved clinical management in the fields of Thrombosis and Haemostasis. Building on the research investigations from this undoubtedly memorable year may be particularly useful to overcome the current pandemic situation. As it became apparent that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was not merely a pulmonary disease but that thrombosis was a key element involved in its severity and complications, the thrombosis research community deployed intensive research efforts in the hope to optimize treatment and/or prophylaxis as well as to decipher the mechanisms and characteristics of COVID-19 thrombosis as rapidly as possible. Due to the urgency of the pandemic development, it was indeed not surprising that publications relating to COVID-19 received by far the most attention in 2020.
