Cardiovascular Disease as a Chronic Sequel to COVID-19: A Case Report

Oscar Rene Vazquez Melo, Ramon Eduardo Garcia Cahuich, Jose Julián Sosa Rodriguez and María Valeria Jiménez Báez

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 26, 2023

COVID-19 infection has shown cardiovascular involvement, particularly when it has a moderate to severe presentation. This alteration has been manifested in arrhythmias, myocarditis, and acute myocardial infarction, among others; persistence of these cardiovascular alterations in the short and medium term has been documented. In Latin America there are no reports of long-term cardiovascular sequelae. We present the case of a 46-year-old female with no previous history of cardiovascular disease wh...

Persistence of Stress Related Left Ventricular Filling Abnormality in Treated Hypertensive Patients

Gaston K Kapuku, Michelle L Brown, Shin Suzuki and Steven Coughlin

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 20, 2022

Hypertension is associated with impaired left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. However, the impact of stress on LV filling of treated hypertensive individuals is unclear. Fourteen hypertensive patients (mean age 55 years) and 14 age-sex matched normotensive controls underwent Doppler echocardiographic studies at rest and one minute following supine ergometer bicycle. The evaluations were done before and under treatment with diltiazem (180 mg/ day) during 24 weeks. Resting blood pressure cont...

Right ventricle (RV) size and function are important for the prognosis of patients with various forms of cardiovascular disease. The right heart differs from the left in terms of anatomy and physiology. COVID-19 may present with cardiac manifestations including myocardial injury, heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. In Chinese experience, patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) have case fatality rate (CFR) is 10.5%....

Coronary Microvascular Injury in the COVID-19 Patient: The Need for Imaging Studies in Post-COVID-19 Cardiovascular Syndrome

Paula Marcela Cuéllar-Pinzón, MD, María Paula Montes-Lozano, MD, Marco Antonio Suárez- Fuentes, MD, Miller Jesús Melo-Mora, MD and Michael Gregorio Ortega-Sierra, MD

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: January 08, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has generated numerous questions about the pathophysiology of the acute phase of this disease, and as time goes by, also of the chronic phase, known as post-COVID-19 syndrome. Although the neurological phenotype (post-COVID 19 neurological syndrome) is the most debated, the evidence points to the fact that the main manifestations of post-COVID 19 patients, regardless of disease severity, are dyspnea, fatigue, tachycardia, and difficulties in performing activities of daily l...
