Predictors of Long COVID in Patients without Comorbidities: Data from the Polish Long-COVID Cardiovascular (PoLoCOV-CVD) Study

Abstract: Background: The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has become an enormous worldwide challenge over the last two years. However, little is still known about the risk of Long COVID (LC) in patients without comorbidities. Thus, we aimed to assess the predictors of LC in patients without comorbidities. Methods: Patients’ information, the course of the disease with symptoms, and post-COVID-19 complaints were collected within 4–12 weeks after COVID-19 recovery. Next, the patients were followed for at least 3 months. ECG, 24-h ECG … Show more

“…This study in Uganda suggests that ECG abnormalities were lower among females, which differs from findings from a cohort study in China [4]. More females than males presented with symptoms of Long COVID which included chest pain, difficulty in breathing, and palpitations that are hallmarks of CVDs [3]. This could have prompted individuals to seek care at post COVID‐19 clinic leading to the initiation of treatment arresting the progression of the sequalae.…”

“…Similar to a Polish Long COVID cardiovascular study [3], most of the participants in this Uganda study presented with complaints of fatigue, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, and palpitation which would warrant further CVD assessment which include ECG to rule out myocardial infarctions, life threatening arrhythmias, or any conduction abnormality. Coincidentally, 13% of the participants were found to have ischemic ECG features, whereas 34.8% of them had nonspecific T‐wave invasion.…”

“…Pelà et al demonstrated that females were more symptomatic than males, not only in the acute phase but also at follow-up [ 33 ]. In another research study, the authors evaluated the predictors of Long-COVID in patients without comorbidities and observed significant differences relating to sex between women with Long-COVID and women without any symptoms after SARS-CoV-2 recovery [ 34 ]. However, there have been no studies until now accessing objectively exercise tolerance after COVID-19.…”

“…Fatigue represents the most common post-acute sequelae of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) [1,2]. Its prevalence in the acute phase of infection is estimated at more than 60% [3], even among patients who eventually do not develop long COVID syndrome [4]. As shown recently, irrespective of initial improvement, most individuals with a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection will suffer from fatigue within three months following the onset of disease [5].…”
