ESC 2021 | Acute and Chronic Myocardial Injury in COVID-19 Patients and Impact in Mortality

In patients hospitalized for COVID-19, both acute and chronic myocardial injury impact survival at 6 months. In addition, the risk does not disappear after the acute phase of the disease, instead it persists in the following months among those who survive.  This study was presented at the scientific sessions of ESC 2021 and was simultaneously

Heparin Anticoagulation in Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients: Results that Differ from the Rest

In critically ill COVID-19 patients, an initial strategy of anticoagulation with heparin did not result in any benefit compared with standard prophylactic treatment. Thrombosis and inflammation are the main issues when discussing COVID-19 related morbidity. This led to testing whether an anticoagulation scheme could improve prognosis in critically ill COVID-19 patients. Given the dynamics of

Surviving Covid-19 with Good Old Heparin?

Patients hospitalized for COVID-19 are at high risk for thrombosis, particularly venous thromboembolism. This information is not new: in a meta-analysis of 66 studies, the overall prevalence of venous thromboembolism among patients with COVID-19 admitted to intensive care units was between 14.1% and 22.7%. Hypercoagulability is an early-described feature of this new virus, and so is

Anticoagulation with Heparin in Non-Critical COVID-19

In non-severe COVID-19 patients, an initial therapeutic strategy with heparin increases the chance of survival after discharge and reduces the need for respiratory and cardiovascular support compared against usual thromboprophylaxis doses.  These data have been welcomed by a medical community eager to receive good news in terms of effective strategies to combat an already existing

Anosmia 1 Year After a COVID-19 Diagnosis

The number of people with post-COVID-19 syndrome seems to be growing exponentially, so we need long-term data to help physicians advise patients correctly. Among the many persistent symptoms, post-COVID-19 anosmia has good prognosis and almost full recovery at 1 year. In April, 2020, these same authors published a cohort of almost 100 COVID-19 positive patients (positive

Could Statins Do More than Lower Cholesterol in COVID-19 Patients?

A history of acute myocardial Infarction, cardiac failure or hyperlipidemia has been associated with increased mortality of COVID-19. Observational studies have suggested statins might reduce death risk from COVID-19, in addition to lowering cholesterol.  Statins have anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic effects that could play a role in the course of the infection.  Other studies have arrived

Efficacy of the Novavax Vaccine Against COVID-19: Nanoparticle Technology to the Test

In healthy adults, two doses of the NVX-CoV2373 (Novavax) vaccine has an efficacy of almost 90% against SARS-CoV-2 infection in all severity types. Furthermore, it has proven to be effective against the alpha variant (B.1.1.7). The Novavax vaccine is a recombinant nanoparticle containing full-length spike glycoprotein. It had already been shown to be safe and

Janssen: Efficacy of the Only Single Dose Vaccine against COVID-19

One single dose of the Ad26.COV2.S vaccine (Janssen) will protect you against symptomatic and asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection. It also resulted effective to prevent severe or critical COVID-19, including hospitalization and death. Safety outcomes resulted similar to other COVID-19 vaccine phase 3 outcomes. Janssen vaccine outcomes were published in NEJM 6 months after the first vaccines

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm during the Pandemic: Should They Be Operated or Deferred?

Some European societies have recommended deferring the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) ≥5.5 cm during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, these documents have also suggested optimal deferral times, and everything must be adjusted according to the transmission risk/risk of rupture balance. Annual risk of rupture can be estimated based on a prospective cohort published by
