(2022) How To Code DVT ICD 10 – List With Codes & Guidelines

DVT ICD 10 is I82. In this article, you will learn the diagnosis coding of Deep Vein Thrombosis and the updated guidelines for ICD 10 and 11.

What Is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Deep vein thrombosis is a condition that occurs when a thrombus or blood clot forms in deep veins, usually in the lower extremity, including legs, but It can also form in other veins of the upper extremity, i.e., arms. 

Signs and symptoms:

  • Swelling in the affected leg
  • Pain in leg
  • Red or discolored skin
  • Warmer area of skin

DVT ICD 10 Code

DVT ICD 10 codes are based on its location and its condition, i.e., Acute or chronic.

Deep vein thrombosis is often related to pulmonary embolism, so DVT with PE should code together in ICD 10 CM.

ICD 10 code for Acute and chronic Thrombosis of the unspecified vein are following:

Acute thrombosis of an unspecified vein is I82.90.

Chronic thrombosis (with embolism) of the unspecified vein is I82.91.

History Of DVT ICD 10

History of DVT ICD 10 code is Z86.718.

Approximate synonyms:

  • H/o deep vein thrombosis
  • H/o artery embolism
  • H/o deep venous thrombosis (blood clot)
  • H/o recurrent deep vein thrombosis
  • History of recurrent deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)
  • History of thromboembolism of vein
  • History of venous thromboembolic disease (blood clot which moves)

ICD 11 Code For Deep Vein Thrombosis

ICD 11 code for Deep vein thrombosis is BD71.

In post coordination of this code, you can also code ICD 11 codes for Acute and chronic conditions and also according to the laterality and anatomical position of the thrombus or vein which is affected.

Post coordination:

Use additional if applicable,

  • ICD 11 for Bilateral  sides is XK9J 
  • ICD 11 for Left  side XK8G
  • ICD 11 for the Right side is XK9K 
  • ICD 11 for Unilateral, unspecified is XK70

Similarly, ICD 11 has additional codes according to the specific anatomy of the affected vein.

  • XA59M2 – ICD 11 for the vein of the head, face, and neck
  • XA0RA8 ICD 11 for a vein of the abdomen
  • XA26H2 – ICD 11 for the vein of the pelvis
  • XA9WN7 – ICD 11 for a vein of upper extremity
  • XA76A3 – ICD 11 for the vein of lower extremity
  • XA60H0 – ICD 11 for Vena cava

What Is DVT Prophylaxis?

DVT prophylaxis is a preventive method to avoid DVT or to prevent having complications of DVT, i.e., pulmonary embolism.

DVT prophylaxis can be divided into primary or secondary. 

Primary prophylaxis is the method that is mostly used, in which you have to take the medications, i.e., thrombolytic or anticoagulants, to avoid thrombus formation and other mechanical methods to prevent DVT.  

Secondary prophylaxis is a rarely used method that includes early diagnoses with screening methods.

DVT Prophylaxis ICD 10

DVT prophylaxis ICD 10 code is Z79.01.

Z79.01 is a billable code that can be used for the diagnosis of long-term (current) use of anticoagulants for reimbursement purposes.

Approximate synonyms:

  • H/o of pulmonary embolism on long-term anticoagulation therapy
  • Long term current use of anticoagulants
  • Anticoagulation monitoring to goal INR 2.0-3.0

ICD 10 code for current long-term use of anti-thrombotic or anti-platelets is Z79.02.

DVT Prophylaxis ICD 11

DVT prophylaxis ICD 11 code is QC05.Y. 

Matching terms:

  • Other specified prophylactic measures for DVT.

What Is Chronic DVT?

A thrombus or clot that lasts for more than one to two months is known as chronic. In chronic DVT, clots become harder and stick to the vein resulting in blockage or stenosis of the vein, so the vein becomes much smaller and does not allow blood to flow through properly.

Chronic DVT ICD 10

Chronic DVT ICD 10 code for embolism and thrombosis of other specified veins is I82.891.

This code is also applicable for the following conditions:

  • Chronic DVT of bilateral pelvic veins
  • Chronic DVT of left pelvic vein
  • Chronic DVT of right pelvic vein
  • Chronic DVT of both pelvic veins
  • Chronic DVT of left pelvic vein
  • Chronic DVT of right pelvic vein
  • Chronic DVT of bilateral pelvic veins
  • Chronic DVT of pelvic vein
  • Chronic DVT of splenic vein
  • Chronic DVT of pelvic vein

Chronic DVT ICD 10 code varies with the anatomical location of the affected area or vein. 

Specific codes for different regions in ICD 10 are discussed below.

Chronic Right Leg DVT ICD 10

Chronic right leg DVT ICD 10 code is I81.501 and is a billable code used for reimbursement purposes.
