History, physical examination and examination of supporting devices such as ECG, thoracic photo, D dimer, fibrinogen, echocardiography and sophisticated procedures such as CT angiography.

Case: There were 4 cases reported. The first, second and third cases occurred pulmonary embolism after postoperative. We used Wells and Geneva scoring to support the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism.
