Abstract: In 2001, consensus meetings on traveller's thrombosis were held in Vienna and Berlin. The results of these conferences were subsequently published in VASA 2002. In 2006 a follow-up conference was organized in Hall, Tirol, Austria, in order to review new and emerging data and to update the conclusions and recommendations of the 2001 meetings. Prior to the conference key papers from peer-reviewed journals were pre-circulated to all participants. The consensus group discussed the data and drafted an updated statement. Thereafter, the writing group summarised the results including the pre-circulated material and additional papers identified by a formal literature search up to December 2007. In this article current knowledge on the incidence, pathophysiology and prevention of traveller's thrombosis is summarised. The assessment of individual risk is described and recommendations for prevention of traveller's thrombosis are given, based upon the conclusions of the Hall Conference.
