VIDEO: Lingering Myocardial Involvement After COVID-19 Infection

Aaron Baggish, M.D., director of the cardiovascular performance program, Massachusetts General Hospital. He was on a 2020 American Heart Association (AHA) meeting panel discussion on the topic of the lingering myocardial involvement after COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. He said there appears to be some long-term effects in the body from COVID, including the heart and vascular system, but it is unknown how long these effects may last. These patients are now being referred to as COVID "long-haulers."

The AHA late-breaking studies included four that pertained specifically to COVID-19. Three of these pertained specifically to the AHA COVID-19 Cardiovascular Disease Registry. It has been collecting data on patients with cardiac co-morbiditities or cardiac involvement since April to provide insights into these patients hospitalized with the novel coronavirus. One study was a review of the registry, a second looked at the racial and ethnic disparities in severe COVID patients. The third looked at the association of body mass index and death, mechanical ventilation and cardiovascular outcomes.

Read more about these three studies in the article COVID-19 Cardiovascular Registry Details Disparities Among Hospitalized Patients.

The fourth study looked at the overall of cardiovascular risk factors in more than 14,000 COVID-19 patients. It showed in-hospital mortality ranged from 28.5 percent for patients with hypertension to 28.6 percent for those with diabetes, 25.5 percent for those with coronary artery disease, and 38.4 percent for those with heart failure.

The X5-1c transducer from Philips provides enhanced clinical information in transthoracic imaging over a standard phased array transducer. When combined with nSIGHT Plus image formation on the EPIQ CVx cardiology ultrasound system, the X5-1c transducer enables image quality rarely seen from a transthoracic transducer. 

Watch the video to learn about the benefits which may include decreased exam time due to faster access to echo windows, increased confidence in quantification results and more.
