Publication date: Jan 23, 2024

Patients with COVID-19 admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) may have right ventricular (RV) injury. The main goal of this study was to investigate the incidence of RV injury and to describe the patient trajectories in terms of RV injury during ICU stay. Prospective and bicentric study with standardized transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) follow-up during ICU stay with a maximum follow-up of 28 days. The different patterns of RV injury were isolated RV dilation, RV dysfunction (tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion
