Help Prevent and Cure Heart Rhythm Diseases–Support the LIRYC Institute

The LIRYC Institute of Bordeaux, France, is asking for the support of our readers. This institute is headed by Professor Michel Haissaguerre, who along with cardiology teams at the University Hospital of Bordeaux, France, is responsible for curing my A-Fib in 1998.
LIRYC stands for L’Institut de RYthmologie et Modélisation Cardiaque (in English: Electrophysiology and Heart Modeling Institute)

The LIRYC Institute: Entirely Dedicated to Heart Rhythm Disorders

Heart rhythm disorders affect millions of people worldwide and account for 30% of all cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of death in the world.

The LIRYC Institute is the only research, care, innovation and teaching Institute fully dedicated to heart rhythm disorders (atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation and heart failure) arising from compromised electrical activity within the heart. It was established ten years ago in France to seek solutions to this major public health.

The Institute espouses a focused multi-disciplinary approach to understanding and treating these disorders. So far, this international team of experts has helped 400,000 patients worldwide suffering from atrial fibrillation. (Including Steve Ryan)

LIRYC Innovations

Entirely dedicated to heart rhythm disorders, LIRYC has chosen to focus on four distinct but interrelated objectives:

research to better understand the mechanisms underlying the disorders;

innovation to invent and develop the therapies of the future;

patient care to continue to improve patient management thus reducing morbidity and mortality rates;

training and education to promote and promulgate best practices for physicians and institutions around the world.

LIRYC Institute Capital Campaign: Supports the Prevention and Cure of Heart Rhythm Diseases

In 2020, LIRYC Institute launched a ten-million-euro capital campaign for the purpose of continuing and broadening the fight on the ravages caused by heart rhythm disorders.

LIRYC Institute is a 501c3 international Non-profit Organization.

Funds raised will be applied to underwriting new research projects and to the purchase of new technology as well as supporting educational and training programs for medical professionals across the globe.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, 35% of the goal has already achieved!
