ICD 10 Code for History of DVT(2022)

DVT stands for Deep Vein Thrombosis. The creation of a blood clot in a deep vein of the leg or lower pelvis. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, warmth, and redness in the affected area. In this article, we know more about the ICD 10 code for history of DVT and related ICD 10 codes that we are using in our claims.

Most of the time a blood clot is created in the legs if someone doesn’t move for a long time. Sometimes it is developed due to long bed rest due to surgery, any illness, or any reason.

DVT can be a serious disease because blood clots in the veins can break loose. The clots in the blood can then travel through the bloodstream and get stuck in the lungs, blocking blood flow, etc. When DVT and Pulmonary Embolism develop together, it is called Venous Thromboembolism (VTE).

Symptoms of DVT:

  • Leg pain, cramping, or soreness
  • Change in skin color on the leg like red or purple
  •  Swelling in leg
  • A warmth feeling on the affected leg
