Intern Med. 2022 Jan 13. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.8855-21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAn elderly patient was admitted to our hospital for acute heart failure soon after receiving influenza vaccination. On admission, chest radiography revealed pulmonary edema. An electrocardiogram showed poor R progression, and echocardiography showed diffuse hypokinesis and myocardial edema. The serum troponin level was elevated. A histopathological evaluation indicated active myocarditis with lymphocyte-predominant infiltrates. A drug-induced lymphocyte stimulation test (DLST) was positive. The patient rapidly recovered from heart...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIn South Korea, all 12th grade students (highs school seniors) were offered BNT162b2 vaccine starting July 19, 2021; while 10th-11th grade students were not eligible. We conducted a nationwide retrospective cohort study by to determine the safety and effectiveness of BNT162b2 mRNA Covid-19 vaccine in adolescents against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Among 444,313 persons who received the first dose of vaccine, reporting rate for myocarditis and/or pericarditis was 1.8 per 100,000 (95% C.I. 0.8-3.5) among first-dose recipie...

AbstractIn this review, we provide a brief description of recently published articles addressing topics relevant to pediatric cardiologists. Our hope is to provide a summary of the latest articles published recently in other journals in our field. The articles address the extracardiac anomalies in fetuses with congenital heart disease, post COVID-19 vaccination myocarditis, the use of cardiac magnetic resonance after the Fontan operation, congenitally corrected transposition in adults, robitically assisted congenital heart surgery and the increased risk of congenital heart surgery in patients receiving tracheal surgery dur...

The U.S. is urging that everyone 12 and older get a COVID-19 booster as soon as they’re eligible, to help fight back the hugely contagious omicron mutant that’s ripping through the country. Boosters already were encouraged for all Americans 16 and older, but Wednesday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed an extra Pfizer shot for younger teens—those 12 to 15—and strengthened its recommendation that 16- and 17-year-olds get it, too. “It is critical that we protect our children and teens from COVID-19 infection and the complications of severe disease,” Dr. Rochelle Walens...

Young children who get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine often have mild side effects, but serious reactions are rare, according to a recent government analysis on vaccine safety in children ages 5 to 11. The data come from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a large vaccine safety surveillance system maintained by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and v-safe, the CDC’s smartphone-based reporting system specifically for COVID-19 vaccine reactions. “After over 8 million COVID-19 vaccinations in this age group, we found t...

Purpose of review Cardiovascular involvement in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is relatively common and portends an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Manifestations of myocardial injury may exhibit significant overlap and result in diagnostic uncertainty. This review will summarize recent literature around cardiovascular complications of COVID-19. Recent findings Venous thromboembolism, atrial fibrillation, and type II myocardial infarction are observed commonly in COVID-19, while severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 viral myocarditis remains quite rare. Although infrequent, COVID-19 vac...
