Electrophysiological study for Ulissi due to his cardiac anomaly

The Italian UAE runner had an irregular heartbeat as a result of inflammation of the myocardial tissue.


After a few months of complete rest due to myocarditis, Diego Ulissi will be committed to more in-depth tests to determine the true extent of this setback. At first, the Italian had an irregular heartbeat due to an inflammation of the myocardial tissue, so he will now have to undergo an electrophysiological study.

As explained by his team, UAE Team Emirates, in an official statement issued last Saturday: "Following the findings of an abnormal rhythm during his routine medical evaluation, Diego Ulissi will undergo an electrophysiological study on January 19. The test will be performed by Professor Antonio Dello Russo, at the Riuniti hospital in Ancona. The procedure will involve an in-depth analysis of the electrical mapping of the heart with possible elimination of arrhythmias ".

The Emirates team affirms that it will update the health status of its rider as soon as possible, once the results of the study are known, so the racing calendar that Ulissi may have in this course is completely unknown. After finishing 2020 in the top-10 of the world ranking as the best year of his career, we hope that he can soon return to demonstrate his quality on the asphalt.
