COLLADO, María Victoria et al. Enfermedad cardiovascular, oncológica y reumatológica, su comportamiento en pacientes COVID-19: Factores pronósticos, complicaciones y tratamiento. Insuf. card. [online]. 2020, vol.15, n.4, pp.90-105. ISSN 1852-3862.

SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) infection clinical course can present its own manifestations, but it can also exacerbate those of pre-existing diseases or cause manifestations that simulate said pathologies. Cardiovascular, cancer or rheumatological diseases are examples of this. These types of pathologies share risk factors for poor prognosis and death due to infection, the possibility of developing long-term complications, and they imply a challenge when establishing follow-up and treatment measures requiring multidisciplinary assessment. Therefore, our objective was to raise the difficulties in the short and long-term follow-up of this type of patients and to evaluate how the pandemic affects their treatment. The pandemic has changed the usual medical practice, promoting new forms of patient follow-up, such as telemedicine, imposing a hierarchy of the need for face-to-face care and procedures, forcing budget items to be reallocated to be able to deal with it, with consequences that are likely to it will have to be analyzed in the long term.
