Abstract: Background: Patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can present with a large panel of cardiac manifestations, including myocardial infarction with (type 1) or without (type 2) obstructive coronary artery disease, arterial or venous thromboembolic disease, pericarditis and myocarditis, arrhythmias, acute heart failure, shock or cardiac arrest. Acute Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been associated with new-onset cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes mellitus (DM), but the long term impact of COVID-19 on cardiometabolic outcomes still remain unclear. The long-term cardiovascular outcomes in diabetic COVID-19 survivors remain largely unclear.This study aimed to determine the cardiovascular impact of COVID-19 on diabetic patients. Methodology: This is a retrospective study comparing angiographic profiles of diabetic patients for whom CAG was indicated and done in the department of cardiology, King George hospital, Visakhapatnam before covid (2018 and 2019 years) and after covid (2021 and 2022 years). Results for analysis were done with the help of SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) version 21 and MINITAB version-18. Conclusion: Patients with Diabetes mellitus (DM) had indications to undergo CAG more after covid when compared situation before covid. There was no significant difference with respect to age and gender distribution and presence of risk factors like hypertension and smoking in the diabetic population studied in pre covid and post covid periods. There was significant increase in clinical presentation as Acute Coronary syndrome (ACS) post covid in diabetic population. In our study, diabetic patients having significant and mild coronary artery disease were statiscally higher after covid) indicating patients having risk factors and comorbities became more symptomatic and had an indication for CAG with increased severity of coronary artery disease after covid.Thrombus burden in coronaries on CAG was higher after covid.
