Code: Z95.2

Code Name: ICD-10 Code for Presence of prosthetic heart valve

Block: Persons with potential health hazards related to family and personal history and certain conditions influencing health status (Z77-Z99)

Code also any follow-up examination (Z08-Z09)

Details: Presence of prosthetic heart valve

Presence of heart valve NOS

Z95

Excludes1: complications of cardiac and vascular devices, implants and grafts (T82.-)

Guidelines: Factors influencing health status and contact with health services (Z00-Z99)

Note: Z codes represent reasons for encounters. A corresponding procedure code must accompany a Z code if a procedure is performed. Categories Z00-Z99 are provided for occasions when circumstances other than a disease, injury or external cause classifiable to categories A00-Y99 are recorded as 'diagnoses' or 'problems'. This can arise in two main ways:
(a) When a person who may or may not be sick encounters the health services for some specific purpose, such as to receive limited care or service for a current condition, to donate an organ or tissue, to receive prophylactic vaccination (immunization), or to discuss a problem which is in itself not a disease or injury.
(b) When some circumstance or problem is present which influences the person's health status but is not in itself a current illness or injury.

There isnt an ICD-9 code for S/P Mitral valve repair; however you can use
V43.3 if the mitral valve was replaced with a prosthetic valve.

V43.3

Hi Maddy,

If the physician replaced the mitral valve by prosthetic valve then the correct ICD code is V43.3.

Thanks,

Could you use under "History, surgery to Heart", V15.1 ? or if you might have had a complication following surgery "Complications, surgical procedures, Cardiac", 997.1 ?
