Cardiac manifestations of COVID-19 include myocardial injury, myocarditis,heart failure, acute coronary syndrome, thromboembolism, and arrhythmias. Cardiovascularinvolvement in COVID-19 is related to poor prognosis and increased mortality. Therefore,the recognition of cardiac complications and prompt treatment of cardiac injury inpatients with suspected COVID-19 is essential.
