ICC 2021
Bad Nauheim, Germany

The first hybrid ICC conference was held in December 2021 in the historical Jugendstil setting of the spa town Bad Nauheim in Germany. With 300 participants joining on-site or virtual, yet another ICC meeting concluded successfully. We would like to thank all participants for their contribution and the fruitful discussions and all sponsors for their kind support.


The programme for ICC 2021 covered many aspects of the disease, ranging from pathophysiology and epidemiology, to diagnosis and surgery, interventional treatment, medical and multimodal therapy. The possible influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on CTEPH incidence was considered and the final session was devoted to current hot topics in the field. The ICC 2021 programme is available here.
