UAE Team Emirates has disclosed a positive prognosis on Diego Ulissi's cardiac condition after the Italian underwent further tests.

Days ago, the Emirati formation informed that the Italian rider showed an abnormal heart rhythm during a routine medical evaluation. Ulissi was set to undergo an electrophysiological study in order to do an in-depth analysis of the electrical mapping of the heart with possible removal of arrhythmias.

The team now has given an update in which it mentions that the results of the test were positive for the Italian rider. "Ulissi underwent an intracardiac ultrasound at the Riuniti Hospital in Ancona, Italy which confirmed a fibrosis of the left posterolateral wall of the heart, the same already reported in the magnetic resonance," said UAE Team Emirates through a statement. "These lesions were found to be very stable and long standing because, despite the electrical and pharmacological stimulation, no arrhythmias have been recorded.

"Four biopsies were also performed at the most significant points, the results of which will be analysed in Padua. Based on the results a final decision can be made. The initial prognosis is generally positive and gives hope for a progressive recovery for the Italian rider."
