Introduction: The new coronavirus pandemic presents itself as one of the major global challenges of the past hundred years.

Objective: To analyze the main cardiac complications related to COVID-19 infection. Design: secondary study, bibliographic, qualitative and descriptive.

Results and Discussion: There was a consensus among the authors analyzed that different cardiovascular disorders may occur as a result of COVID-19 at different stages of the disease. Risk factors such as the presence of comorbidities, age factor and behavioral factors were associated with the possibility of negative outcomes.

Final Considerations: Potential complications such as myocarditis, acute myocardial infarction, reduced ejection fraction and inflammation of large vessels were reported in the course of the condition. Studies should continue to be carried out to better evidence this pathophysiological relationship between COVID-19 and the heart.
