Mid- and Long-Term Atrio-Ventricular Functional Changes in Children after Recovery from COVID-19

The study, “Mid- and Long-Term Atrio-Ventricular Functional Changes in Children after Recovery from COVID-19,” aimed to evaluate cardiac mechanics in children who recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection using two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE). Here are the key findings and conclusions: Summary: This study presents crucial insights into the cardiac impact of COVID-19 on children. Despite experiencing mild or no symptoms, a significant proportion of children showed subtle yet persistent changes in cardiac mechanics after recovery. The use of advanced echocardiography techniques revealed these subclinical myocardial deformations, particularly in the left ventricular region. These findings are pivotal as they suggest that even mild…
