ITACA-UPV presents its innovative solutions at the European Congress of Cardiology

The annual Congress of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), held April 7-9 in Berlin, was attended by researchers from the COR (Cardiac Oriented Research Group).

Researchers from the COR group at the ITACA-UPV Institute actively participated in the annual Congress of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), held from April 7 to 9 in Berlin, presenting important contributions and solutions in the field of cardiology that caused great attention among the attendees.

Specifically, a total of 2 papers and 5 poster presentations were given by members of the COR (Cardiac Oriented Research Group) and collaborators such as Corify Care, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona and Hospital Gregorio Marañón of Madrid.

«The works focused on different aspects related to arrhythmias, the main theme of the congress. For this reason, several research studies were presented on the application of noninvasive mapping (ECGI) to guide the implementation of cardiac pacing therapies, as well as validations of the technique to characterize atrial and ventricular electrical activity, or to predict the efficacy of ablation in cases of atrial fibrillation. In addition, the usefulness of ECGI as a noninvasive tool for assessing cardiac function and guiding clinical procedures,» emphasize the ITACA-COR group researchers.

Innovative approaches

In fact, the innovation of the approaches reflects the ITACA Institute’s commitment to cutting-edge research and advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

«Our research represents a step forward in the search for effective, patient-centered solutions,» said the members of the COR group.

For this reason, they valued the participation very positively, since the congress has been a space «for the exchange of knowledge, creation of synergies and debate on the latest trends in the field of study,» concluded the researchers of the UPV research institute.


The Cardiac Oriented Research Group (COR) stands out for its focus on scientific research of excellence in the cardiovascular area and its commitment to the advancement of medical technology and knowledge transfer to different medical and industrial sectors.

With a team of 14 full-time members, the group is dedicated to improving the conditioning and processing of cardiac signals to obtain electrophysiological data and contribute to their understanding. COR works in close collaboration with experts in cardiac electrophysiology, biomedical engineering and health sciences, using artificial intelligence to develop innovative and non-invasive methods for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
