“Myocarditis, Heart Failure and Arrhythmias in Patients with Zika”

That is the title of Mayo Clinic Cardiology fellow, Dr. Karina Gonzalez Carta, presentation next week at The American College of Cardiology (ACC) Meeting in Washington DC.

ABC News released a story about Dr. Gonzalez Carta’s findings titled “Doctors tie Zika virus to heart problems in some adults” and although the article is describing myocarditis they never use the term.
