The ICD-10 Code For Heart Disease

Heart disease has a wide range of codes in the ICD-10 system. These codes are categorized according to the level of severity, ranging from I11 to I25. In this article, we’ll discuss codes such as 745.5 (Atrial septal defect), I25 (Endocardial cushion defect), and I11 (Coronary artery disease).


ICD-10 codes are part of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). Generally, you should use the corresponding ICD-9 code for the diagnosis when submitting a reimbursement claim. The ICD-10 code for heart disease, or 745.5, is used for conditions with multiple etiologies and manifestations. It should only be used on claims submitted before September 30, 2015, and after October 1, 2015.

Historically, this code has been used for a diagnosis of congenital heart defects. It has been associated with low rates of diagnosis and can be difficult to identify in children. Although it’s often misdiagnosed, it can be an important part of a child’s health history. Depending on the severity, treatment may include medicines, catheter procedures, and/or heart transplants.

Atrial septal defect

An atrial septal defect is an abnormal communication between the upper chambers of the heart. It is typically congenital. However, the condition can be acquired as well. There are several different types of atrial septal defects. Each one has its own classification based on the location of the defect and the degree of incomplete fusion. An isolated atrial septal defect is typically not of hemodynamic significance.

The ICD 10 code for atrial septal defects is Q21.1. This code is considered a billable diagnosis because it is detailed enough to accurately describe the medical condition. However, the documentation required to support this diagnosis is limited. In other words, it is difficult for the provider to determine whether the condition is present when the patient is admitted.

A hole in the cardiac septum occurs during development in the womb before birth. Sometimes the septum fails to close as it should, causing blood to flow directly between the two upper chambers. As a result, the heart and lungs will be under more strain. In some cases, blood supply to other parts of the body may be affected as well.

Endocardial cushion defect

Endocardial cushion defect is an ICD 10 code for a condition in which there is an incomplete growth of the endocardial cushions. These tissues are important for the formation of future atrioventricular valves and the two atrioventricular canals. A defect in this tissue may cause the patient to develop a septal defect.

Women who were exposed to alcohol during pregnancy had an elevated risk of developing conotruncal or endocardial cushion defects. This was particularly true of endocardial cushion defects. Future research needs to examine the mechanistic basis of this association. As a result, education and counseling regarding the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy should be undertaken. The results of future studies will help to develop preventative strategies for this condition.

Coronary artery disease

The ICD 10 code for coronary artery diseases has two key components. First, it defines the condition as acute. This condition occurs within four weeks of the onset of the disease. This definition is different than ICD-9-CM, which only defines acute myocardial infarction as a condition that occurs within eight weeks.

Second, the ICD 10 code for coronary artery diseases includes codes for patients who undergo CABG, or heart transplants. These codes describe the type of graft used to replace the heart and are documented by the physician. The physician may include these codes or not, depending on the type of graft. Lastly, the combination codes specify the type of angina a patient may have.

Angina is the most common symptom of CAD. This pain is typically described as pressure, tightness, or squeezing in the chest. It may also radiate to the arms, neck, jaw, or back. Angina is associated with an increased risk of a heart attack, but the symptoms usually subside after a few minutes of rest.

Another ICD 10 code for coronary artery diseases is I20.0. This code is used for unstable angina and is a subtype of intermediate coronary syndrome. It also covers pre-infarction syndrome and angina decubitus. And code 411.1 is for other acute and subacute forms of ischemic heart disease.

Generally speaking, the ICD 10 code for coronary artery diseases is based on the symptoms of the patient, such as a pressure or tightness in the chest. In some cases, the patient may also feel fatigued during physical activity. If the coronary artery becomes completely blocked, it can result in a heart attack, which is a life-threatening condition.
