Have you looked at V18.3 or V19.8, just for starters for the family history aspect? The V12 category deals more with personal history and you've asked about family history. Wonder what our other colleagues will suggest?

Jo, Jo, I think your code choice is better suited after looking at this again. Upon further review, I seem to remember that this was posted in the forum somewhere and can't pull it up. But yes, I would agree your choice is a better one as it does relate to the "other cardiovascular disease NOS" Thanks for pointing this out!

DVT is a vascular disease but not technically a "cardiovascular" disease". I would go with V19.8


HTH :)
