The 6th Middle East CTO Summit was held in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) from January 11th to 12th, 2018 at the Assila Hotel, and brought together over 800 participants from 20 countries and more than 60 international speakers experts in CTO. 
 
The IMC LIVE 2018 was primarily based on live transmission cases, interactive forum, and dedicated lectures, during which experts from different countries shared their experience to the new generation of interventionists on CTO.
 
This year, we have collaborated jointly with pioneers of Japanese CTO club and Euro CTO club members as well as many scientific societies from Middle East.
 
With live transmission from two Cath labs, experienced hands were working simultaneously performing Live selected CTO cases with different updated techniques, tools and devices, as well as recent multicenter trials, to improve procedural success rate.
