Why donate?

30% of cardiovascular diseases are caused by a heart rhythm disorder.

There are three heart rhythm disorders related to failures in the electrical activity of the heart: atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation and heart failure.

These diseases affect millions of people worldwide, either chronically or acutely, or even immediately and fatally. Regardless of your age, you can be affected. As can your loved ones.

Heart rhythm disorders cause each year:

  • 20 % of strokes in the world
  • 325,000 sudden cardiac deaths in the United States
  • 1M hospitalisations for heart failure in the United States

When supporting Liryc, you are helping researchers and doctors projects such as:

  • Funding new research projects to further understanding of cardiac electrical disorders,
  • Purchasing new equipment to provide experts with the best technology tools available and support medical innovation,
  • Supporting education and training programmes to spread knowledge in more centres worldwide and to ensure all patients benefit from therapeutic advances.

Regarding all those broken lives, the suffering of patients and their loved ones, it is urgent to find solutions. You can help us fight these disorders through prevention, treatment or training healthcare professionals.

Liryc’s doctors and researchers are convinced that, in this fight, scientific research entirely dedicated to cardiac rhythmology will result in rapid and significant progress for the benefit of patients worldwide. This research includes an international, multi-disciplinary approach, using the most sophisticated technologies. You can contribute to this advances through your commitment at our side.

 

"It is a real public health issue. Sudden death cause as many deaths in France as breast, lung and colon cancer combined, or 50,000 deaths per year, or 1 death every 10 minutes," according to Professor Michel Haïssaguerre, Founder and Honorary President of Liryc.
