Superb tips for ICD 10 code for Deep Vein Thrombosis

Basics about ICD 10 code for Deep vein thrombosis


Deep vein thrombosis, or deep venous thrombosis, (DVT) is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein, predominantly in the legs. Non-specific signs may include pain, swelling, redness, warmness, and engorged superficial veins. DVT can cause many harmful disorders. Medical coders due to the implementation of ICD 10 codes are finding difficult to code this diagnosis. The ICD 10 code for deep vein thrombosis has been increased a lot in numbers compared to ICD 9. In ICD 10 we have specific codes for DVT for each vein of lower extremity as well. Also, we have specific ICD 10 codes for proximal as well as distal lower extremity thrombosis. So, now you understand how specific the ICD 10 codes for deep vein thrombosis will be. So, let us checkout the ICD 10 codes for DVT from specified to unspecified veins.
