Neither a high D-dimer
or serum IgE level, baseline UAS7 score, gender, associated angioedema, nor inducible urticaria was significantly associated with an increased treatment success rate upon updosing.
Recent studies revealed that high D-Dimer
levels may predict the existence of a pseudoaneurysm.
False positive D-dimer
results can occur due to clinical factors associated with conditions such as cancer, pregnancy, and advanced age.
The following tests of haemostasis are done only once: Platelet count and peripheral smear, PT (Prothrombin time), aPTT (activated Partial Thromboplastin Time), Fibrinogen and D-dimer
Primary outcomes of interest were the sensitivities, specificities, positive and negative predictive values, for all three CPRs, abnormal D-dimer

was measured using an immunoturbidimetric assay on a Sta-R analyzer (Liatest D-DI, Diagnostica Stago).
It was reported in a systematic review that outpatients with a low pretest probability and a negative D-dimer
test had a three-month incidence of DVT of 0.
PERC was developed in response to the growing and inappropriate use of D-dimer
testing to rule out PE in situations with very low clinical suspicion.
Plasma thus isolated was evaluated for prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), fibrinogen (FIB), fibrin degradation products (FDP), and D-dimer
The safe and effective management of suspected PE, utilising a diagnostic algorithm that combines a validated clinical decision rule, the D-dimer
test and CTPA  has been documented in various studies in the past decade.
is a laboratory biomarker that may be a candidate diagnostic test for the diagnosis of PE, since it has been used for the detection of thrombus.
Laboratory results on hospitalization revealed anemia and elevated levels of fibrin degradation products (FDP), D-dimer
, and fibrinogen (FIB), but prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) were within the normal range (Table 1).
We aimed to compare the clinical diagnostic values of the Wells score, the revised Geneva score and each of them combined with D-dimer
for suspected PE in elderly patients.
