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


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.

Hi Maddy,

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

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 ?
