What ICD-10 Codes Are Used for Mitral Regurgitation?

Mitral regurgitation is when the mitral valve in the heart doesn't close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward into the heart. Here are the commonly used Mitral Regurgitation ICD codes:

  • I34.0: Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) insufficiency
  • I34.1: Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) prolapse
  • I34.2: Nonrheumatic mitral (valve) stenosis
  • I34.8: Other nonrheumatic mitral valve disorders
  • I34.9: Nonrheumatic mitral valve disorder, unspecified

Which Mitral Regurgitation ICD Codes Are Billable?

Determining which Mitral Regurgitation ICD codes are billable is essential for healthcare providers. Here's an overview:

  • I34.0: Yes. This code is used for nonrheumatic mitral insufficiency, another mitral regurgitation term.
  • I34.1: Yes. This code is used for nonrheumatic mitral prolapse, which can lead to mitral regurgitation.
  • I34.2: Yes. This code is used for nonrheumatic mitral stenosis, which can coexist with mitral regurgitation.
  • I34.8: Yes. This code is used for other nonrheumatic mitral valve disorders that may include mitral regurgitation.
  • I34.9: Yes. This code is used for unspecified nonrheumatic mitral valve disorders, including mitral regurgitation.

Clinical Information

Mitral regurgitation can have various underlying causes and may require medical intervention. Here's what you need to know:

  • Symptoms may include shortness of breath, fatigue, and palpitations.
  • The condition can be caused by mitral valve prolapse, rheumatic heart disease, or coronary artery disease.
  • Diagnosis involves echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and sometimes cardiac catheterization.
  • Treatment options include medications like diuretics and beta-blockers and surgical interventions like valve repair or replacement.
  • Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent complications like heart failure.

Synonyms Include:

  • Mitral insufficiency
  • Mitral valve leakage
  • Backflow of blood in the mitral valve
  • Mitral valve disorder
  • Heart valve regurgitation

Commonly asked questions

What are the common symptoms of mitral regurgitation?

Common symptoms of mitral regurgitation include shortness of breath, especially during physical activity or when lying down, fatigue, and palpitations or irregular heartbeats.

How is mitral regurgitation diagnosed?

Mitral regurgitation is typically diagnosed through imaging tests such as echocardiography, which provides detailed images of the heart's structure and function. Additional tests like cardiac MRI or cardiac catheterization may also be used.

What are the treatment options for mitral regurgitation?

Treatment options for mitral regurgitation may include medications to relieve symptoms and improve heart function and surgical interventions like mitral valve repair or replacement for severe cases.
