Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Cardiac involvement seems to impact prognosis of COVID-19, being more frequent in critically ill patients. We aimed to assess the prognostic value of right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, evaluated by bedside echocardiography (echo), in patients hospitalized with COVID-19. METHODS: Patients admitted in 2 reference hospitals in Brazil from Jul to Sept/2020 with confirmed COVID-19 and moderate/severe presentations underwent clinical a… Show more

“…For the purposes of this discussion, we have selected and tabulated ( Table 5 ) prior relevant reports where there was sufficient data for between-study comparisons, including RV dysfunction, need for mechanical ventilation, and mortality rates. 2 , 11 , 12 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 , 21 To simplify the comparison between our study and the previously published reports, prior studies were sorted by the reported hospital mortality. Accounting for differences in study populations and reported endpoints, our findings agree with prior reports.…”

“… In the studies with available data endpoints, including current one (star), visual assessment reveals strong positive correlation between RV dilatation and mortality (Panel A), RV dilatation and positive pressure ventilation (Panel B), and positive pressure ventilation and mortality (Panel C). 2 , 11 , 12 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 , 21 …”

“…Even when the LV is spared, variables such as TAPSE, RV ejection fraction, RV strain and pulmonary artery pressure are associated with lab markers (D-dimer, troponin) and clinical outcomes. 9 Although this may result from pulmonary vascular and parenchymal involvement and ventilatory support, the exact mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. Importantly, given the hyperdynamic state of patients with COVID-19 (especially in severe forms with exposure to vasopressors), LV and RV variables must be cautiously interpreted, as they may predict unfavourable outcomes even within a 'normal' range for other populations.…”

“…Importantly, given the hyperdynamic state of patients with COVID-19 (especially in severe forms with exposure to vasopressors), LV and RV variables must be cautiously interpreted, as they may predict unfavourable outcomes even within a 'normal' range for other populations. 9 Thus, MRI may add to prognostic scores, given its high sensitivity for subtle abnormalities.…”
