  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I37.0 for Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve stenosis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I37.1 for Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve insufficiency
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I37.2 for Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve stenosis with insufficiency
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I37.8 for Other nonrheumatic pulmonary valve disorders
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use I37.9 for Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve disorder, unspecified

An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Information for Patients


Heart Valve Diseases

Your heart has four valves. Normally, these valves open to let blood flow through or out of your heart, and then shut to keep it from flowing backward. But sometimes they don't work properly. If they don't, you could have

Valve problems can be present at birth or caused by infections, heart attacks, or heart disease or damage. The main sign of heart valve disease is an unusual heartbeat sound called a heart murmur. Your doctor can hear a heart murmur with a stethoscope. But many people have heart murmurs without having a problem. Heart tests can show if you have a heart valve disease. Some valve problems are minor and do not need treatment. Others might require medicine, medical procedures, or surgery to repair or replace the valve.
