2021 ICD-10-CM Code T82

Complications of cardiac and vascular prosthetic devices, implants and grafts

Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

T82 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of complications of cardiac and vascular prosthetic devices, implants and grafts. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

ICD-10:T82
Short Description:Complications of cardiac and vascular prosth dev/grft
Long Description:Complications of cardiac and vascular prosthetic devices, implants and grafts

Code Classification

Coding Guidelines

The appropriate 7th character is to be added to each code from block Complications of cardiac and vascular prosth dev/grft (T82). Use the following options for the aplicable episode of care:

Specific Coding for Complications of cardiac and vascular prosth dev/grft

Non-specific codes like T82 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 complications of cardiac and vascular prosth dev/grft:

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 T82:


Type 2 Excludes

Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

7th Character Note

7th Character Note
Certain ICD-10-CM categories have applicable 7th characters. The applicable 7th character is required for all codes within the category, or as the notes in the Tabular List instruct. The 7th character must always be the 7th character in the data field. If a code that requires a 7th character is not 6 characters, a placeholder X must be used to fill in the empty characters.

7th Character

7th Character
Indicates that a seventh character is to be assigned to codes in a subcategory.

Information for Patients


Heart Surgery

Also called: Cardiac surgery

Heart surgery can correct problems with the heart if other treatments haven't worked or can't be used. The most common type of heart surgery for adults is coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). During CABG, a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected, or grafted, to a blocked coronary (heart) artery.

Doctors also use heart surgery to

Heart surgery has risks, even though its results often are excellent. Risks include bleeding, infection, irregular heartbeats, and stroke. The risk is higher if you are older or a woman. The risk is also higher if you have other diseases or conditions, such as diabetes, kidney disease, lung disease, or peripheral arterial disease.
