Previous studies have highlighted coronavirus as the most likely risk factor for acute cardiovascular complications. However, a study was published in the Lancent that aimed to demonstrate the association of covid 19 with the risk of acute myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke, analyzing cases in Sweden.

This study analyzed the reported cases reported in Sweden. Controls matched by age, sex, and district of residence in Sweden, covering all patients who had been admitted in the period from February 1 to September 14, 2020.
The study found an increased risk of acute myocardial infarction or ischemic stroke in the first 2 weeks after covid 19.
“Our results suggest that kovid 19 is a risk factor for acute myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke. This indicates that acute myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke are part of the clinical picture of kovid 19 and underscores the need for coronavirus vaccination. , ”the statement said. of the Lancent.
Evidence focused on the link between covid 19 and cardiovascular complications is based on relatively small studies, limited to the early stages of a pandemic, and includes mostly inpatients – i.e. those with serious illnesses. Consequently, population-level studies are needed to identify the weight of acute cardiovascular events after kovid 19.
Could the nanotele be a lifeline?
To our knowledge, this is the largest study using all patients diagnosed with covid 19. It identifies the risk of the first acute myocardial infarction and the first ischemic stroke using two separate methods, the self-monitoring case series method and the study of corresponding control.
Evidence suggests that acute cardiovascular complications may represent an important clinical manifestation of covid 19, and long-term effects may be a challenge for the future.
These findings could change clinical practice and justify the prioritization of preventive and diagnostic strategies, which may influence treatment and, therefore, reduce the burden of morbidity and mortality in this group of patients.
No, kovid 19 does not enter our DNA
