Wells on testing in medicine for MDCalc: Scarvelis D A systematic review Wells PS was performed in which evaluated 14 studies with patients that used the Wells score to predict risk of DVT and evaluated for incidence of DVT in association with moderate of high sensitivity d-dimer.

If the dimer was positive these patients also received an US. Trends in the incidence of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: Durante el periodo del estudio se establecieron 3.


Formula Addition of the assigned points. A score of 3 or higher suggests DVT is likely. Assessing clinical probability of pulmonary embolism in the emergency ward: Escala de Ginebra revisada.

Management of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism presenting to the emergency department by using a simple clinical model and d-dimer. Only 5 of the components of the Wells scale were associated with the presence of proximal DVT.

Guidance from the British Committee for Standards in Haematology. We studied patients in 23 hospital emergency departments; the mean SD age was 65 18 years and Read this article in English.

Pulmonary embolism at CT angiography: Of the patients in the d-dimer group, were considered unlikely and considered likely to have DVT. PE was diagnosed on the basis of the multislice computed tomography angiography and, to a lesser extent, with other imaging techniques. Retrospective study of clinically suspected PE in the emergency department between January and December Heparin and low molecular weight heparin. Incidence and predictors of repeated computed tomographic pulmonary angiography in emergency department patients.


Our objective is to investigate if PE is diagnosed according to clinical practice guidelines. Review of 5, consecutive patients. Las sospechas de EP fueron 3. The Wells score inherently incorporates clinical gestalt with a minus 2 score for alternative diagnosis more likely.

British Thoracic Society guidelines for the management of suspected acute pulmonary embolism. The CPS used was the revised Geneva scoring system.

High suspicion for DVT should warrant imaging regardless of Wells score. Med Clin Barc, pp.
