Objective: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has placed huge strains on medical systems. Therefore, it is essential to determine the predictors of the long hospital stay. We sought to investigate whether alterations in left ventricular (LV) geometry in COVID-19 patients are associated with the length of stay (LoS) and a long hospital stay.
