Özet

Background: The frequency of cardiovascular problems in patients with COVID-19 could be interpreted to suggest an increase in the number of cardiovascular admissions in the COVID-19 era. However, almost all countries announced social restrictions and distancing measures which could unintentionally lead to a decline in admissions to the hospital for acute disorders other than those associated with pneumonia. This study aimed to compare cardiovascular admissions before and after COVID-19 at the emergency department of secondary and tertiary centers in Turkey.
