ICC 2023
San Diego, USA and virtual
29–30 September 2023


ICC 2023 was held in the InterContinental Hotel located on the waterfront of the San Diego Bay in San Diego, USA. Following the success of ICC 2021, the conference was again held in a hybrid format, enabling both in-person and virtual attendance. The conference attracted an international audience of almost 300 health-care professionals involved in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH).


During the 1.5-day scientific conference, a faculty of approximately 30 renowned experts in CTEPH covered the pathophysiology of CTEPH, diagnostic challenges, discussed how to best make treatment decisions, and presented the management of operable and inoperable patients in specialised round table sessions. The detailed ICC 2023 programme is available here.
