  • Billable Code
  • Short description: Tricuspid valve disease.

Clinical Information
  • Incomplete closure of the tricuspid valve, resulting in tricuspid regurgitation; it is usually secondary to systolic overload in the right ventricle.
  • Narrowing or stricture of the tricuspid orifice of the heart.
  • The backflow of blood from the right ventricle into the right atrium, owning to imperfect functioning/insufficiency of the tricuspid valve.
Applies To
  • Tricuspid (valve) (rheumatic):
    • disease
    • insufficiency
    • obstruction
    • regurgitation
    • stenosis

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 397.0 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare. Although ICD-9-CM and CPT codes are largely numeric, they differ in that CPT codes describe medical procedures and services. Can't find a code?
