More studies needed to prove Covid vax causes heart inflammation: experts

As more studies point to heart inflammation in young, healthy adults, especially after the second dose, top doctors said Sunday that this should not be cause for alarm because more conclusive studies are needed to prove that vaccines should be avoided. Covid-19.

The Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that the risk of myocarditis, pericarditis or myopericarditis (acute inflammation of the heart) is higher after the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

In this condition, inflammation in the heart muscle and lining of the heart can cause various heart problems.

Other studies have also reported these incidences at around 0.3 to 5 per thousand population, making them a rare phenomenon.

More importantly, these cases were treated in time and did not result in death, although most of these patients required hospitalization.

“In other words, these cases were relatively rare and most of them recovered from their condition with simple conservative symptomatic treatment without the need for significant intervention,” said Dr Sanjith Saseedharan, consultant and head of intensive care, SL Raheja Hospital, Mahim. IANS.

Whether there are long-term consequences for this condition, only time will tell.

“However, this complication is seen more in young people, probably because they have stronger immune systems that can sometimes cause unregulated inflammation,” explained Dr. Saseedharan.

As more cases of unexpected heart attacks and even strokes come to light among healthy, young and middle-aged Indians, a new survey revealed last week that both unvaccinated and vaccinated people are affected by this new health problem.

About 51 percent of citizens said that they have one or more people in their close network who have experienced a heart attack or stroke, blood clots, neurological complications, cancer acceleration or other sudden medical conditions in the last two years.

According to a survey by LocalCircles, a social community platform, 62 percent of citizens said those in their network who developed such conditions were double-vaccinated, 11 percent said those affected were vaccinated with a single dose, while 8 percent said they were not vaccinated.

According to cardiologists, the sudden increase in people dying unexpectedly from heart attacks is worrying.

“Although we don’t have enough data and evidence to prove whether this is a Covid-induced phenomenon; definitely this has increased post-covid. Long-term effects of Covid could be responsible in some cases,” Dr. Samir Kubba, director of cardiology, Max Super Specialty Hospital, said is Vaishali to IANS.

According to Dr. Sanjeev Gera, Director and Head of Cardiology, Fortis Hospital, Noida, Covid or prolonged Covid can cause permanent inflammation in the heart vessels.

“This can break silent blockages and cause a heart attack, especially after unusual exercise such as lifting heavy weights or walking on a treadmill or running in cold weather, and the risk increases when there are risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking or obesity,” Gera told IANS.

There is currently no significant evidence that this condition can have any adverse outcome as the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the risks, Dr. Saseedharan added.
