 Jean Marco

 

Professor Jean Marco became involved in percutaneous coronary angioplasty procedures almost from the early beginnings. He was Professor of Cardiology at the University of Toulouse and head of the Hemodynamic Department in the University Hôpital Purpan where he performed his first coronary angioplasty procedure on September 1, 1979.

Jean welcomed many cardiologists in his cath lab to teach this new technique. In December 1981, he presented the first French multicenter study at the French Society of Cardiology in Paris.

In the 1980s he began teaching courses to mentor young cardiologists. He founded the Interventional Cardiology Unit in the Clinique Pasteur in Toulouse in 1987. Jean Marco was the Founder and Course Director of several legacy teaching courses and organized his first live demonstration course in 1982 in Toulouse, which later, with Jean Fajadet, became the ¨Complex Coronary Angioplasty and New Techniques in Interventional Cardiology¨ course and then the PCR (Paris Course on Revascularisation).

Mentoring and educating others have always been a passion for Professor Jean Marco.
