EVALUATION OF BIOCHEMICAL PARAMETERS IN CORONARY ARTERY PATIENTS WITH COVID-19 INFECTIONHatice Yildirim Yaroglu ,Emrah Yesil
As a result of pneumonia brought on by coronavirus disease (COVID-19), acute myocardial infarction, and chronic cardiovascular system damage, the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infects host cells via ACE2 receptors. In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) who are positive for COVID-19, early measurement of cardiac damage through biomarkers and careful monitoring of myocardial damage that may be caused by infection should be performed. The goal of this study is to retrospectively assess the results of biochemical laboratory testing in CAD patients who have positive COVID-19 results. Biochemical laboratory results of 70 covid-19 positive CAD and 70 covid-19 negative CAD were examined retrospectively. When comparing the LDH, CRP, and Troponin I parameters between groups, a significant difference was detected. These biomarkers are important to prevent and rapidly treat COVID-related myocardial damage in CAD patients.
