    Ischemia is a restriction in blood supply, generally due to factors in the blood vessels, with resultant damage or dysfunction of tissue.

    So, if your report is directed towards brain then

    437.1 ( Ischemia --> cerebral )

    And if directed towards heart then

    414.9 ( Ischemia --> heart )

    Hope this helps!
