• Corrected Abstract or Commentary: A negative D-dimer result and low-risk clinical status effectively ruled out DVT in symptomatic patients



In the commentary by Douketis [A negative D-dimer result and low-risk clinical status effectively ruled out DVT in symptomatic patients and A negative D-dimer test result alone or combined with low-risk clinical status effectively ruled out symptomatic DVT (1)], the third sentence is incorrect. It should be “Recent studies have established that the combination of a negative D-dimer test result with a normal DUS or normal impedance plethysmographic measurement obviates the need for repeated noninvasive testing.”
