Valid for Submission
I67.82 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of cerebral ischemia. The code I67.82 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code I67.82 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute cerebral ischemia, brain stem ischemia, cerebral ischemia, cerebral ischemic stroke due to extracranial large artery atherosclerosis, cerebral ischemic stroke due to small artery occlusion , chronic cerebral ischemia, etc.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code I67.82:
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
- Chronic cerebral ischemia
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code I67.82 are found in the index:
- - Convulsions (idiopathic) - See Also: Seizure(s); - R56.9
- - apoplectiform (cerebral ischemia) - I67.82
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute cerebral ischemia
- Brain stem ischemia
- Cerebral ischemia
- Cerebral ischemic stroke due to extracranial large artery atherosclerosis
- Cerebral ischemic stroke due to small artery occlusion
- Chronic cerebral ischemia
- Chronic hypoxic-ischemic brain injury
- Chronic vascular insufficiency
- White matter disorder due to ischemia
- White matter disorder due to vascular abnormality
- BRAIN ISCHEMIA-. localized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. this frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia hypoxia brain. prolonged ischemia is associated with brain infarction.
- ISCHEMIC ATTACK TRANSIENT-. brief reversible episodes of focal nonconvulsive ischemic dysfunction of the brain having a duration of less than 24 hours and usually less than one hour caused by transient thrombotic or embolic blood vessel occlusion or stenosis. events may be classified by arterial distribution temporal pattern or etiology e.g. embolic vs. thrombotic. from adams et al. principles of neurology 6th ed pp814 6
- HYPOXIA ISCHEMIA BRAIN-. a disorder characterized by a reduction of oxygen in the blood combined with reduced blood flow ischemia to the brain from a localized obstruction of a cerebral artery or from systemic hypoperfusion. prolonged hypoxia ischemia is associated with ischemic attack transient; brain infarction; brain edema; coma; and other conditions.
Convert I67.82 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code I67.82 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
A stroke is a medical emergency. There are two types - ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke is the most common type. It is usually caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain. This keeps blood from flowing to the brain. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Another cause is stenosis, or narrowing of the artery. This can happen because of atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) occur when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted briefly. Having a TIA can mean you are at risk for having a more serious stroke.
Symptoms of stroke are
- Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body)
- Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
- Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
- Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
- Sudden severe headache with no known cause
It is important to treat strokes as quickly as possible. Blood thinners may be used to stop a stroke while it is happening by quickly dissolving the blood clot. Post-stroke rehabilitation can help people overcome disabilities caused by stroke damage.
