The latest update utilizes a risk stratification model based on two previously validated risk factor point systems Rogers Score (Table 1) and Caprini Score ( Table. Following calculation of the Caprini score for each patient, mixed logistic spline regression was used to determine the predicted probabilities of. The Caprini scoring system was published in Disease-A-Month, a journal for primary care physicians, with an impact factor of Forty proposed risk factors.

Author manuscript; available in Caprinii Mar 1. Clinical assessment of venous thromboembolic risk in surgical patients. Patients discharged from each participating hospital are sampled on an eight-day rolling cycle to avert bias in selecting cases for review. The overall rate of VTE among patients who received pharmacologic prophylaxis was not significantly different from those that did not receive this treatment 1.

With the publication of new meta-analyses and guidelines, 53 it is important to note that such analyses are only as reliable as the constituent studies. Patients undergoing minor colorectal surgery without additional VTE risk factors, who have a Rogers Score less than 7 and Caprini Score of 0, are considered very low risk. While national guidelines endorse assessing VTE risk in hospitalized sccore patients through use of various risk assessment models RAMs1 – 6 no accepted standard by which cwprini perform this evaluation is currently available.

Patients at higher risk levels Through use of a large, multi-site sample of non-surgical, non-ICU, medical patients, and state-of-the-art analyses examining the association between the continuous Caprini RAM and day VTE events, our work circumvents many of these limitations and advances the science in novel ways. Because chemoprophylaxis was not standardized and was individualized at the patient level, hundreds of potential combinations were present for chemoprophylaxis type, timing, duration, and intensity.
