CMAJ. 2006 Oct 24;175(9):1087-92. Review. Erratum in: CMAJ. 2007 Nov 20;177(11):1392.

I➜ In 2006, Scarvelis and Wells overviewed a set of clinical prediction rules for deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), on the heels of a widely adopted set of clinical criteria for pulmonary embolism. The Wells Criteria for DVT, also called Wells Score for DVT takes into account the patient’s history and may need to be repeated if a patient presents with a change in symptoms, persistent symptoms or is not responding to treatment.
