All recommendations are written in pico format, and evidence is stratified using the grade working group process the most important concept from this guideline is that, rather than performing the same tests in all patients, the pretest probability of a dvt should determine the diagnostic pathway, much as. The cochrane library contains a recent 2014 systematic review and network meta-analysis (up-to-date to december 2013) that examines the risk of venous thrombosis in women using different cocps a pico search using the tripdatabase (search term: p: “women”, i: “drospirenone”, c: “levonorgestrel”.

The antiphospholipid syndrome (aps) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by arterial and venous thrombosis, gestational morbidity and presence of the questions were structured by use of the pico (patient, intervention or indicator, comparison and outcome) process, enabling the generation of search.
