VIDEO: Impact of COVID-19 on the Interventional Cardiology Program at Henry Ford Hospital

Detroit, Michigan, has been one the hardest hit regions with a large number of COVID-19 cases. William O’Neill, M.D., medical director of the Center for Structural Heart Disease at Henry Ford Hospital, explains the impact of novel coronavirus (COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2) on the cardiology program and his takeaways on COVID-19 cardiovascular involvement based on cases he has seen.

O'Neill said ST-elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) cases have mysteriously dropped off significantly since quarantines began, a reflection of a nationwide trend. He also said he has not seen a lot of myocarditis or cardiogenic shock COVID-19 patients, except for a small handful. These conditions have been reported elsewhere in COVID-19 patients, but O'Neill said the patients he has seen die of COVID-19 usually have an onset of a cytokine storm, lose vascular integrity and then all their organs fail. He has not seen a primary cardiac component involved in most of the critically ill patients where hemodynamic support would have helped.
