    Coronavirus disease MESHD 2019 (COVID-19) is a global pandemic impacting nearly 170 countries/regions and millions of patients worldwide. Patients with acute myocardial infarction MESHD myocardial infarction HP ( AMI MESHD) still need to be treated at percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) centers with relevant safety measures. This study was conducted to assess the therapeutic outcomes of PCI performed under the safety measures and normal conditions. AMI MESHD patients undergoing PCI between January 24 to April 30, 2020 were performed under safety measures for COVID-19. Patients received pulmonary computed tomography (CT) and underwent PCI in negative pressure ICU. Cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) staff and physicians worked with level Ⅲ personal protection. Demographic and clinical data, such as door-to-balloon (DTB) time, operation time, complications for patients in this period (NCP group) and the same period in 2019 (2019 group) were retrieved and analyzed. NCP and 2019 groups had 37 and 96 patients, respectively. There was no significant difference in age TRANS, gender TRANS, BMI and comorbidity between the two groups. DTB time and operation time were similar between the two groups (60.0 ± 12.39 vs 58.83 ± 12.85 min, p = 0.636; 61.46 ± 9.91 vs 62.55 ± 10.72 min, p = 0.592). Hospital stay time in NCP group was significantly shorter (6.78 ± 2.14 vs 8.85 ± 2.64 days, p < 0.001). The incidences of malignant arrhythmia MESHD arrhythmia HP and Takotsubo Syndrome MESHD in NCP group were higher than 2019 group significantly (16.22% vs 5.21%, p = 0.039; 10.81% vs 1.04% p = 0.008). During hospitalization and 3-month follow-up, the incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events and mortality in the two groups were statistically similar (35.13% vs 14.58%, p = 0.094; 16.22% vs 8.33%, p =0.184). Our analysis showed that safety measures undertaken in this hospital, including screening of COVID-19 infection MESHD and use of personal protection equipment for conducting PCI did not compromise the surgical outcome as compared with PCI under normal condition, although there were slight increases in incidence of malignant arrhythmia MESHD arrhythmia HP and Takotsubo Syndrome MESHD.

    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) presents as the main cause of death MESHD, respiratory and heart failures MESHD, especially in the elderly TRANS, immunosuppressed, and those with cardiovascular comorbidities. Therefore, a better understanding of these findings is needed. A systematic review was carried out looking for articles published between December 2019 and May 2020 on the MEDLINE / PubMed search platform using the following descriptors: (((((((((" cardiovascular disease MESHD") OR ("acute myocardial infarction HP myocardial infarction MESHD")) OR (" coronary artery disease MESHD")) OR ("acute coronary syndrome MESHD")) OR (" atherosclerosis HP atherosclerosis MESHD")) OR (" cardiac insufficiency MESHD")) OR (" pericarditis HP pericarditis MESHD")) OR (" myocarditis HP myocarditis MESHD")) AND ("COVID-19")) OR ("SARS-CoV-2")and considering inclusion and exclusion criteria.40% of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 had hypertension HP hypertension MESHD or other cardiovascular comorbidities, while 27% presented cardiovascular complications, mainly acute cardiac injury MESHD, arrhythmia HP arrhythmia MESHD and heart failure MESHD. The hypotheses of involvement of an intense inflammatory response, decreased HP immunity and greater expression of ACE2 in the heart, associated with more severe heart conditions, were discussed in this study. The increase in cardiac and inflammatory markers was associated with worse clinical outcomes and risk of death MESHD, confirming the need to evaluate them since admission to the hospital. The 10 articles analyzed presented as a limitation the small number of patients inserted, to the detriment of the pandemic state. We warned about the need for better clinical management of patients with cardiovascular comorbidities MESHD, and the importance of including this group among the first to be immunized, aiming at reducing the number of fatal cases due to infection MESHD. Studies with greater coverage are needed for a better comprehension of the topics discussed here.

    Background: Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin use is associated with QT interval prolongation MESHD and arrhythmias HP arrhythmias MESHD. Despite ongoing multiple clinical trials for treatment of COVID19 infection MESHD, no definite cardiac safety protocols were proposed. The aim of our study was to assess cardiac safety in COVID-19 patients treated with the combination of Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin using close monitoring and arrhythmia HP arrhythmia MESHD risk management plan.Methods and results: We retrospectively examined arrhythmia HP arrhythmia MESHD safety of treatment with Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin in the setting of pre-defined cardiac arrhythmia MESHD arrhythmia HP risk management plan. 81 patients were included from March 23rd to May 10th 2020. The median age TRANS was 59 years, 58.0% were female TRANS. The majority of the study population (82.7%) had comorbidities, 98.8% had radiological signs of pneumonia HP pneumonia MESHD. 7 patients (8.6%) had QTc prolongation MESHD of ≥500 ms. The treatment was discontinued in 4 patients (4.9%). 14 patients (17.3%) experienced QTc≥480 ms and 16 patients (19.8%) had an increase of QTc≥60 ms. None of the patients developed ventricular tachycardia HP ventricular tachycardia MESHD. The risk factors significantly associated with QTc≥500 ms were hypokalemia HP hypokalemia MESHD (p = 0.032) and use of diuretics during the treatment (p = 0.020). Three patients had a lethal outcome; none of them associated with ventricular arrhythmias HP ventricular arrhythmias MESHD.Conclusion: We recorded a low incidence of QTc prolongation MESHD ≥500 ms and no ventricular tachycardia HP ventricular tachycardia MESHD events in COVID-19 patients treated with Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin using cardiac arrhythmia MESHD arrhythmia HP risk management plan.

    Objectives. To describe the age TRANS- and sex-specific prevalence SERO of SARS-CoV-2 disease MESHD (COVID-19) and its prognostic factors. Design. Population-based prospective cohort study on archive data. Setting. Preventive services and hospital care in the province of Reggio Emilia, Northern Italy. Participants. All 2653 symptomatic patients who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 from February 27 to April 2, 2020 in the province of Reggio Emilia. Main outcome measures. Hospitalization and death up to April 2, 2020. Results. Females TRANS had higher prevalence SERO of infection MESHD than males TRANS below age TRANS 50 (2.61 vs. 1.84 per 1000), but lower in older ages TRANS (16.49 vs. 20.86 per 1000 over age TRANS 80). Case fatality rate reached 20.7% (22/106) in cases with more than 4 weeks follow up. After adjusting for age TRANS and comorbidities, men had a higher risk of hospitalization (hazard ratio (HR) 1.4 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.2 to 1.6) and of death (HR 1.6, 95% CI 1.2 to 2.1). Patients over age TRANS 80 compared to < age TRANS 50 had HR 7.1 (95% CI 5.4 to 9.3) and HR 27.8 (95% CI 12.5 to 61.7) for hospitalization and death MESHD, respectively. Immigrants had a higher risk of hospitalization (HR 1.3, 95% CI 0.99 to 1.81) than Italians and a similar risk of death MESHD. Risk of hospitalization and of death MESHD were higher in patients with heart failure MESHD (HR 1.6, 95% CI 1.2 to 2.1and HR 2.3, 95% CI 1.6 to 3.2, respectively), arrhythmia HP arrhythmia MESHD (HR 1.5, 95% CI 1.2 to 1.9 and HR 1.8, 95% CI 1.3 to 2.5, respectively), dementia HP dementia MESHD (HR 1.2, 95% CI 0.9 to 1.8 and HR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1 to 2.8, respectively), ischemic MESHD heart disease MESHD (HR 1.3, 95% CI 1.0 to 1.7 and HR 1.7, 95% CI 1.2 to 2.5, respectively), diabetes MESHD (HR 1.5, 95% CI 1.3 to 1.9 and HR 1.6, 95% CI 1.1 to 2.2, respectively), and hypertensions HP hypertensions MESHD(HR 1.4, 95% CI 1.2 to 2.6 and HR 1.6, 95% CI 1.2 to 2.1, respectively), while COPD increased the risk of hospitalization (HR 1.9, 95% CI 1.4 to 2.5) but not of death MESHD (HR 1.1, 95% CI 0.7 to 1.7). Previous use of ACE inhibitors has no effect on risk of death (HR 0.97, 95% CI 0.69 to 1.34) Conclusions. The mechanisms underlying these associations are mostly unknown. A deeper understanding of the causal chain from infection MESHD, disease onset, and immune response to outcomes may explain how these prognostic factors act.

    Importance: The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections MESHD outbreak in China is now a global issue. There is only a limited understanding of the clinical characteristics of patients with SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD is available.Objective:To describe the characteristics, management strategies, and outcomes of critically ill MESHD patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD.Design, Setting, and Patients: This is aretrospective, multi-center case series of 50 critically ill MESHD patients with confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD who were admitted at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University and Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital in Wuhan, China, from January 8 to February 9, 2020.Exposures:Documented Corona Virus Disease MESHD, 2019 (COVID-19).Main Outcome Measures: Demographic, clinical, laboratory, imaging data were collected along with management strategies, complications and outcomes of enrolled individuals. Results Fifty critically ill MESHD patients with SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD were enrolled. Their median age TRANS was 62 (range, 29-92) [IQR,49.5-69.0] years, 68% were male TRANS, and 28 (56%) patients had comorbidities, the most common being hypertension HP hypertension MESHD. In this cohort, 20(40%) patients survived ,16(32%) patients died, and the rest remained hospitalized. The invasive mechanical ventilator was used in 36(72%) patients with 15(30%) of them requiring prone positioning, and 17(34%) switched to ECMO. The compliance scores of lungs (Cstat)on the day of ICU admission among survivors were higher than those in non-survivors [42.0(18.0-47.0), vs. 19.5(14.0-24.2), p=0.038].The blood SERO IL-6 levels and neutrophils counts at the first day of ICU admission were significantly higher in non-survivors compared to survivors [123.7(85.3-228.8), vs. 20.2(6.8-67.2) ng/ml, p=0.025 for IL-6, and 20.2(6.8-67.2) vs. 4.01(1.99-7.05) × 10⁹/L, p=0.02 for neutrophils counts].The heart rates, PaCO2, lung injury MESHD scale (LIS), and positive end-expiratory pressure levels were constantly higher for 10 days in non-survivors than those who survived (p<0.05). The frequency of vasopressor uses and neuromuscular blockers was higher in non-survivors from day 1 to day 10 compared to survivors (p<0.05). In the whole cohort, the most common complications were ARDS (97%), shock HP shock MESHD (44%), arrhythmia HP arrhythmia MESHD (38%), acute cardiac injury MESHD (26%), and acute kidney injury HP acute kidney injury MESHD (22%). A secondary bacterial infection MESHD was noted in 17(34%) patients. Univariate analysis indicated that lower lung complianceand higher neutrophil counts at the day of ICU admission were related to higher mortality (p-0.03, and 0.04, respectively)ConclusionWe demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD-related critical illness predominantly affected old individuals with comorbidities and characterized by severe hypoxemic respiratory failure MESHD respiratory failure HP, often requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation and rescue therapies. Low lung compliance and persistently elevated PaCO2 indicated poor outcomes.
