Abstract

The disease known as COVID-19 not only affects the respiratory system, but can also involve the cardiovascular system. This work describes the main viral characteristics, the pathophysiology and its repercussion at the cardiac level. SARS-COV2 enters the cells of the respiratory epithelium through the interaction of protein S with the receptor for the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, which can lead to a severe inflammatory reaction. Among the most important cardiovascular manifestations we have direct myocardial damage, which can cause from acute myocardial infarction to cardiogenic shock, followed by the presence of heart failure and finally the appearance of arrhythmias.

Keywords
