VTED - Predicting the Risk of Recurrence:
The Vienna Score

Introduction:

The Vienna Prediction Model is designed to estimate the risk of a recurrent VTE event after an unprovoked venous thromboembolism and was has been developed to identify individuals at low risk for VTE recurrence in whom anticoagulation therapy may be stopped after 3 month.

The Revised Vienna Prediction model has replaced the original model - see References for additional information and the Links to access the Prediction model.
