2021 ICD-10-CM Code T82.0

Mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis

Version 2021

Not Valid for Submission

ICD-10:T82.0
Short Description:Mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis
Long Description:Mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis

Code Classification

  • Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00–T98)
    • Complications of surgical and medical care, not elsewhere classified (T80-T88)
      • Complications of cardiac and vascular prosth dev/grft (T82)

T82.0 is a non-specific and non-billable diagnosis code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis. 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.

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 Mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis

Non-specific codes like T82.0 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 mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis:

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - T82.01 for Breakdown (mechanical) of heart valve prosthesis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.01XA for initial encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.01XD for subsequent encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.01XS for sequela
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - T82.02 for Displacement of heart valve prosthesis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.02XA for initial encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.02XD for subsequent encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.02XS for sequela
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - T82.03 for Leakage of heart valve prosthesis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.03XA for initial encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.03XD for subsequent encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.03XS for sequela
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - T82.09 for Other mechanical complication of heart valve prosthesis
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.09XA for initial encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.09XD for subsequent encounter
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use T82.09XS for sequela

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 T82.0:


Inclusion Terms

Inclusion 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.

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. 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

Also called: Valvular heart disease

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.
