ICD Code I80 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the six child codes of I80 that describes the diagnosis 'phlebitis and thrombophlebitis' in more detail.


The ICD code I80 is used to code Thrombosis

Thrombosis (Greek: θρόμβωσις) is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus; Greek: θρόμβος) inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system. When a blood vessel is injured, the body uses platelets (thrombocytes) and fibrin to form a blood clot to prevent blood loss. Even when a blood vessel is not injured, blood clots may form in the body under certain conditions. A clot that breaks free and begins to travel around the body is known as an embolus.
