Thanks to the integration of the electrophysiology and cardiac stimulation department of the Bordeaux University Hospital into the institute, the Liryc teams are conducting one of the most ambitious programmes in the world in cardiac rhythmology. Liryc has designed unique technological platforms that enable the rapid transfer of research results to care centres to benefit the greatest number of patients.

Pediatric catheter

Every year in France, around 400 babies are born with a heart defect called transposition of the great vessels in which the main arteries of the heart are inverted, causing the baby to not receive enough oxygen in their blood to fuel their body. This condition is life-threatening immediately from birth, often requiring instantaneous surgery, sometimes even in the delivery room.

The tools that currently exist for such a procedure are not suitable, which complicates the operation.

The Liryc University Hospital Institute responded to this specific need by developing a dedicated pediatric catheter. This innovative device is designed to adapt to the anatomical particularities of babies, thereby facilitating emergency procedures and significantly reducing the associated risks. The development of this pediatric catheter represents major progress.

Every day, Liryc develops new technologies and tools that will treat heart rhythm diseases in the future.

Working closely with international industry and leading universities, Liryc translates its research results into medical devices that will be used to treat patients around the world.

Cardiac imaging platform

Liryc boasts an exceptional array of cutting-edge imaging equipment, unparalleled in the world. Among these tools are a state-of-the-art MRI system with an exceptionally high magnetic field strength of 9.4 Tesla, enabling the acquisition and processing of ex vivo 3D data with remarkable resolution. Additionally, Liryc possesses two MRIs with a field strength of 1.5 Tesla, serving both clinical and research purposes by facilitating simultaneous analysis of cardiac structure and electrical signals. Complementing these resources is a multimodal platform and a micro X-ray scanner.

The primary aim of this project is to elevate the platform to new heights by expanding its capabilities through the acquisition of high-performance equipment specifically designed for studying electrical disorders of the heart. Simultaneously, the project aims to ensure the provision of comprehensive training to future professionals while facilitating the recruitment of new talent.

By procuring a state-of-the-art photon counting scanner, this project will contribute significantly to the advancement of medical care. It is estimated that this acquisition will allow for the treatment of 1,000 out of the 50,000 patients diagnosed with ventricular fibrillation each year.
