JIM is JIM: Live cases
with no interruptions!
I
n 2016 we inaugurated JIM in Mi-
lan. The experience was positive
and we decided to maintain the
location and the venue. The structure
and the spirit of the Course will not
change: live cases with practical
tips and tricks and selected lectures
covering the most important aspects
of interventional cardiology.
This year we will discuss, and
try to put into perspective, some
shortcomings regarding bioresorb-
able scaffolds. A half-day is devoted
to progress in the field of bioresorb-
able scaffolds, and our focus is on
problems, with possible solutions
highlighted, along with technological
innovations. During live case trans-
missions, we demonstrate optimal
implantation techniques in order to
improve short- and long-term results.
Continuous emphasis will be
maintained on current and new
generation drug-eluting stents that
are easily deliverable to most lesions,
with very low thrombosis rates and
solid long-term outcomes.
The strong partnership of JIM
with CRF/TCT maintains the high
scientific level that is needed. As
always, the most relevant aspect,
“The main theme of JIM”, will stay
unchanged: “Uninterrupted live
demonstrations.” Our goal is to
be as close as possible to real life,
with no cuts during live demonstra-
tions. Operators will demonstrate
problem-solving techniques from the
beginning to the end, and without
skipping any difficulties.
Our philosophy is to communicate
