Short Description: Endothelial cell (EC) activation, endotheliitis, vascular permeability, and thrombosis have been observed in patients with severe COVID-19, indicating that the vasculature is affected during the acute stages of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Results from this study indicated that multiple inflammatory and EC activation biomarkers were associated with mortality in COVID-19 patients and in severity-matched SARS-CoV-2-negative patients, while dysregulation of specific microRNAs at presentation was specific for poor COVID-19-related outcomes and revealed disease-relevant pathways.

2022 | Combined Cardiac Fluorodeoxyglucose-Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging Assessment of Myocardial Injury in Patients Who Recently Recovered From COVID-19

Short Description: There is limited understanding of changes with myocardial metabolism in patients who have recovered from acute COVID-19. In this paper, we examine myocardial metabolic changes early after recovery from COVID-19 using fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET) and associate these changes to abnormalities in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based function and tissue characterization measures and inflammatory blood markers.
