Covid-19 May Have a Hidden Impact on the Heart
... The condition poses a heightened risk to those whose physical activity puts stress on the heart: Even before the pandemic, myocarditis was a leading cause of death in young, otherwise healthy athletes.
It’s crucial to find out whether the coronavirus raises the risk of heart complications in people of all ages who are even mildly active. “Imagine if it turns out that 5 or 10 or 15 percent of asymptomatic or mild infections have clinical myocarditis on an M.R.I. — that would be unheard-of, in terms of how do we evaluate the safety for someone returning to exercise, regardless of their level of fitness,” says Jonathan Drezner, state director of the Center for Sports Cardiology at…

The Core Lesson of the COVID-19 Heart Debate
But viruses can incidentally affect the heart. They do so often enough that in the Western world, they are the most common cause of myocarditis. At least 20 known viruses can trigger this condition, including those that cause influenza, Zika, dengue, and measles.
As evidence builds that COVID-19 can damage the heart, doctors are racing to understand it
Fears that COVID-19 can cause the cardiac inflammation called myocarditis have grown, as doctors report seeing previously healthy people whose COVID-19 experience is trailed by myocarditis-induced heart failure.
COVID-19 Can Wreck Your Heart, Even if You Haven’t Had Any Symptoms
A growing body of research is raising concerns about the cardiac consequences of the coronavirus. Taking on myocarditis is a chore. Thankfully, some acute cases resolve on their own, requiring only hospital monitoring and possibly some heart medications.
Covid-19 infections leave an impact on the heart, raising concerns about lasting damage
Two new studies from Germany paint a sobering picture of the toll that Covid-19 takes on the heart, raising the specter of long-term damage after people recover, even if their illness was not severe enough to require hospitalization.
Covid-19 Is Creating a Wave of Heart Disease
Emerging data show that some of the coronavirus’s most potent damage is inflicted on the heart.
Even if you’re asymptomatic, COVID-19 can harm your heart, study shows – here’s what student athletes need to know

New research now shows that even young people with COVID-19 who are asymptomatic are at risk for developing potentially dangerous inflammation around the heart.
For Covid Long-Haulers, a Little-Known Diagnosis Offers Possible Treatments—and New Challenges
A disorder called POTS offers some treatment paths, but they are often arduous.

Recognizing COVID-19–related myocarditis: The possible pathophysiology and proposed guideline for diagnosis and management
Human coronavirus-associated myocarditis is known, and a number of coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19)–related myocarditis cases have been reported. The pathophysiology of COVID-19–related myocarditis is thought to be a combination of direct viral injury and cardiac damage due to the host’s immune response.
SARS-CoV-2 post-infective myocarditis: the tip of COVID-19 immune complications?
Although many clinical similarities exist with Kawasaki disease, COVID-19 post-infective myocarditis should be considered as a potential complication of COVID-19 that may not be limited to children.

Recent research suggests some people who recovered might have lingering heart inflammation and injury, even if their cases weren’t severe.
Covid-19 May Have a Hidden Impact on the Heart
Even if myocarditis turns out to be a common feature of Covid, we won’t know how much it increases the total number of those affected by the condition. The definitive way to diagnose it is through a biopsy of heart tissue, but unless people show symptoms, they aren’t usually screened for myocarditis, which is typically caused by viruses, including influenza. When detected cases result in reduced cardiac function, about half the time the heart returns to normal on its own, even if scarring remains...
