Abstract

Background. The new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which has arisen as a result of infection SARS-CoV-2, which causes severe respiratory syndrome, is characterized by high morbidity, mortality and is a big problem in the health sector. The aim — to use 2-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) in combination with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in the assessment of left ventricular longitudinal strain (LVGLS) in pregnant women with confirmed coronavirus infection, hospitalized in the O.M. Filatov Municipal Clinical Hospital No. 15, Moscow, Russian Federation. Methods. The results of STE were analyzed in 102 pregnant women with confirmed coronavirus infection at the hospital stage of treatment. Results. There was no decrease in LVGLS values in pregnant women with COVID-19 without a history of cardiovascular pathology. There was also no additional decrease in the LVGLS value in pregnant women with COVID-19 and initially reduced LVGLS in the presence of a cardiovascular history (the results were consistent with those in pregnant women with concomitant cardiovascular pathology, but without a new coronavirus infection). Conclusions. In pregnant women with COVID-19 without a history of concomitant pathology, STE did not provide additional information regarding possible subclinical left ventricular dysfunction.
