Risk of Heart Failure in the Post COVID-19 Era: Insights from a New Cardiac Model Study

A study called “Predicted risk of heart failure pandemic due to persistent SARS-CoV-2 infection using a three-dimensional cardiac model”, utilizing a novel human iPS cell-derived cardiac microtissue (CMT) model, provides crucial insights into the potential long-term cardiac effects of SARS-CoV-2 infection, raising concerns about a possible global heart failure pandemic in the post-COVID-19 era. Key Findings: In summary, this study underscores the potential for a significant increase in heart failure cases in the post-COVID-19 era, driven by the persistent effects of SARS-CoV-2 on cardiac function. The findings highlight the importance of monitoring and managing the long-term cardiovascular impacts of COVID-19.…
