Thread: Heart Valve Repair Code??

  1. #1

    Question Heart Valve Repair Code??

    AAPC: Back to School

    If a patient has a replacement heart valve we code V43.3, If that same patient one year later has a repair done what code do we use?

    What is the ICD-9 code for a heart valve repair?

    Thank you!

    This is a tough one. If the replacement valve is being repaired what about using code 996.71 with the appropriate E codes?
