Not Valid for Submission

I25.72 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of atherosclerosis of autologous artery coronary artery bypass graft(s) with angina pectoris. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

Code Classification

Specific Coding for Atherosclerosis of autologous artery CABG w angina pectoris

Non-specific codes like I25.72 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for atherosclerosis of autologous artery cabg w angina pectoris:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I25.720 for Atherosclerosis of autologous artery coronary artery bypass graft(s) with unstable angina pectoris
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I25.721 for Atherosclerosis of autologous artery coronary artery bypass graft(s) with angina pectoris with documented spasm
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I25.728 for Atherosclerosis of autologous artery coronary artery bypass graft(s) with other forms of angina pectoris
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I25.729 for Atherosclerosis of autologous artery coronary artery bypass graft(s) with unspecified angina pectoris

Information for Patients


Angina

Angina is chest pain or discomfort you feel when there is not enough blood flow to your heart muscle. Your heart muscle needs the oxygen that the blood carries. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. It may feel like indigestion. You may also feel pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back.

Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common heart disease. CAD happens when a sticky substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, reducing blood flow.

There are three types of angina:

Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina. If you have chest pain, you should see your health care provider.

Atherosclerosis

Also called: Arteriosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Plaque is a sticky substance made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries. That limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your body.

Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems, including

Atherosclerosis usually doesn't cause symptoms until it severely narrows or totally blocks an artery. Many people don't know they have it until they have a medical emergency.

A physical exam, imaging, and other diagnostic tests can tell if you have it. Medicines can slow the progress of plaque buildup. Your doctor may also recommend procedures such as angioplasty to open the arteries, or surgery on the coronary or carotid arteries. Lifestyle changes can also help. These include following a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, and managing stress.

Coronary Artery Disease

Also called: CAD, Coronary arteriosclerosis, Coronary atherosclerosis

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women.

CAD happens when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed. This is due to the buildup of cholesterol and other material, called plaque, on their inner walls. This buildup is called atherosclerosis. As it grows, less blood can flow through the arteries. As a result, the heart muscle can't get the blood or oxygen it needs. This can lead to chest pain (angina) or a heart attack. Most heart attacks happen when a blood clot suddenly cuts off the hearts' blood supply, causing permanent heart damage.

Over time, CAD can also weaken the heart muscle and contribute to heart failure and arrhythmias. Heart failure means the heart can't pump blood well to the rest of the body. Arrhythmias are changes in the normal beating rhythm of the heart.
