The overall goal of the study is to investigate the characteristics and potential mechanisms responsible for myocardial injury and dysfunction in patients after COVID-19 vaccination. Cardiac damage will be assessed with cardiac MRI and endomyocardial biopsy (EmBx) histopathology. Myocardial gene expression will be measured in RNA extracted from EmBxs mRNA abundance compared to nonfailing and failing control hearts.
