VIDEO: Long-COVID Presentations in Cardiology at Beaumont Hospital

Justin Trivax, M.D., an interventional cardiologist who works with long-COVID patients at Beaumont Hospital, explains some of the common symptoms and their prevalence in the Beaumont long-COVID clinic. 

COVID long hauler syndrome is no longer seen as a big mystery because large numbers of these patients have been seen and treated. The bottom line is that while long-hauler symptoms are an issue for patients, they do not appear to be life-threatening and the big fear of large numbers of new heart failure patients post infection has not materialized.

"Interestingly, the patients do get better. It is a slow process, but by the one-year point we do see improvement in patients with this prolonged syndrome," reassured Trivax.

Many of the patients Trivax has seen only had a mild case of COVID, but presenting months later with cardiac issues. Trivax said these patients often test troponin positive. The question as to what is causing this often results in a cardiac MRI.

"There are also patients who had very mild symptoms [during their COVID infection] and those patients don't have a major event, however, they may have those prolonged symptoms," Trivax said. "We see this in the MRI studies that have been performed. But, what these abnormal cardiac MRIs really mean, we don't quite know. We don't have any long-term data for these COVID patients."
