KAZELIAN, LUCÍA R. et al. RACCOVID-19: First Argentine Registry of Cardiovascular Complications in COVID-19 Patients. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2021, vol.89, n.4, pp.285-292.  Epub 01-Ago-2021. ISSN 1850-3748.


Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has caused one of the largest pandemics known to date. The Argentine Society of Cardiology (SAC) and the Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC) have developed the First Argentine Registry of Cardiovascular Complications in COVID-19 patients (RACCOVID-19) with the purpose of performing a nationwide review of their impact in the in-hospital evolution of these patients.


The aim of this study was to record cardiovascular complications in hospitalized patients for COVID-19, and to evaluate risk predictors of these complications and their prognostic impact.


A total of 2750 patients from 50 centers in 11 provinces of the country were included from May 18 to October 31, 2020.


Mean age was 57±18 years, with a prevalence of male gender (60.2%). Cardiovascular complications occurred in 15.3% of cases. Heart failure (43.5%), arrhythmias (33.5%) and myocardial injury (31.1%) were the most relevant complications. Mortality was 19.3%, and a predictive model of in-hospital survival included age, male gender, admission hematocrit and creatinine, history of previous diseases, severe forms of COVID-19 presentation and cardiovascular complications.


The RACCOVID-19 registry showed 15.3% of cardiovascular complications. Overall mortality was 19.3% and cardiovascular complications together with other presentation variables as well as the clinical severity of COVID-19, are part of a clinical risk profile associated with higher mortality.
