The Caprini risk score is a risk assessment tool for the occurrence of venous thromboembolism among surgical patients. The Caprini risk score includes 20 variables and it is derived from a prospective study of 538 general surgery patients.

Originally developed for surgical patients, the Caprini RAM facilitates the derivation of VTE risk by summing individual risk factors so as to place patients into four categories: “low risk” (0-1 points), “moderate risk” (2 points), “high risk” (3-4 points), and “highest risk” (≥5 points).
