ABSTRACT

Complete heart block (CHB) is a serious health condition, and polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is an important autoimmune disease. In the COVID-19 pandemy, several vaccines were developed for the COVID-19 disease that shown several side effects, and some of these complications are still unknown. This is the first report of CHB in a patient with history of PAN after COVID-19 vaccination. A 68-year-old man with a history of PAN referred to our hospital, complaining of presyncope episodes and dizziness after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Physical examination, laboratory tests, and transthoracic echocardiography were normal. In his electrocardiogram, a narrow QRS complex, AV dissociation, and junctional escape rhythm were seen. Coronary angiography showed a mild coronary artery disease. The patient, suffering from PAN for years, was hypothesized due to CHB a few days after COVID-19 vaccination. This case report suggests that COVID-19 vaccines may interrupt the conduction system of the heart and the fact that underlying PAN may predispose to CHB following COVID-19 vaccination. Further studies are needed to accurately assess a possible association between PAN, CHB, and COVID-19 vaccines.

ABSTRACT

A 65‐year‐old man became ill a few days after being vaccinated against the COVID‐19 by the Sinopharm vaccine. Laboratory investigations, trans‐thoracic echocardiography, and chest computed tomography scanning (CT‐scan) retrieved normal results. The patient's electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythms with 2:1 AV‐block and a narrow QRS complex. Coronary angiography showed mild coronary artery disease. The COVID‐19 pandemic has urged the scientific community to focus on developing of vaccines, and the potential side effects on the cardiovascular system are unknown. Here, we reported a second‐degree AV block in a man receiving a COVID‐19 vaccine.

ABSTRACT

The infection caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) immersed the globe into a widespread pandemic. The disease leads to acute respiratory disease syndrome , hypercoagulation, and cardio-vascular diseases. In this case report, we presented an 80-year-old man with right atrial clot and acute pulmonary embolism, who was diagnosed with COVID-19. The patient was isolated and transferred to the intensive care unit with a diagnosis of submissive pulmonary thromboembolism and right atrial clot following COVID-19 infection. Antibiotics and anticoagulants were administered, and the patient was referred for mechanical thrombectomy. He did not die and after recovery, was discharged with warfarin administration. Preventing thromboembolic events seems to be the first priority in the management of COVID-19 patients. It is necessary to look for strategies to manage and prevent the early occurrence of thromboembolic events in these patients.

ABSTRACT

The novel pandemic of coronavirus infection (COVID-19) has been linked with coagulopathy and thromboembolic events, causing limb loss and finally death. The present report describes a case of upper limb ischemia in a patient with COVID-19 infection, who lacked conventional risk factors for acute limb ischemia (ALI).mAn 83 year-old man with intraluminal thrombus and the occlusion of the axillary and brachial arteries, ceasing blood supply to the distal part of the body, was tested positive for the COVID-19 infection. The patient received therapeutic anticoagulation and underwent open thromboembolectomy, which failed to save the patient's life. The link between COVID-19 and thromboembolism remains unknown and needs further studies to be disclosed.
