“Of clots and failures” A case of Covid causing STEMI and subsequent
heart failure ultimately requiring LVAD
AbstractCOVID-19 is known to cause hypercoagulable and pro-inflammatory states
and increase the risk of cardiovascular events. We present a case of a
57-year-old female with prior COVID who subsequently developed a STEMI
requiring LVAD due to new-onset heart failure. There are no similar
reports of this cardiovascular complication in COVID-19.
