ICD-10-CM Code I82.3
Embolism and thrombosis of renal vein
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
I82.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of embolism and thrombosis of renal vein. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code I823 is used to code Renal vein thrombosis
Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is the formation of a clot in the vein that drains blood from the kidneys, ultimately leading to a reduction in the drainage of one or both kidneys and the possible migration of the clot to other parts of the body. First described by German pathologist Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen in 1861, RVT most commonly affects two subpopulations: newly born infants with blood clotting abnormalities or dehydration and adults with nephrotic syndrome. Nephrotic syndrome, a kidney disorder, causes excessive loss of protein in the urine, hypoalbuminemia, hypercholesterolemia and edema, triggering a hypercoagulable state and increasing chances of clot formation. Other less common causes include hypercoagulable state, cancer, renal transplantation, behcet syndrome, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or blunt trauma to the back or abdomen. Treatment of RVT mainly focuses on preventing further blood clots in the kidneys and maintaining stable renal function. The use of anticoagulants has become the standard treatment in treating this abnormality. Membranous Glomerulonephritis, the most common cause for nephrotic syndrome in adults, peaks in people ages 40–60 years old and It is twice as likely to occur in men than in women. Since nephrotic syndrome is the most common cause of RVT, people over 40 years old and men are most at risk to develop a renal vein thrombosis.
