Specific code 2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 424.3
Pulmonary valve disorders
  • Billable Code
  • Short description: Pulmonary valve disorder.
  • ICD-9-CM 424.3 will be replaced by an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes) when the United States transitions from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM on October 1, 2015.
  • ICD-9-CM 424.3 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.

  • Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve regurgitation
  • Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve stenosis
  • Pulmonary incompetence, non-rheumatic
  • Pulmonary stenosis, non-rheumatic
  • Pulmonary valve disease
  • Pulmonary valve disease, nonrheumatic
  • Pulmonary valve disorder
  • Pulmonary valve regurgitation
  • Pulmonary valve regurgitation, nonrheumatic
  • Pulmonary valve stenosis
  • Pulmonary valve stenosis, nonrheumatic
  • Pulmonic valve regurgitation
  • Pulmonic valve stenosis
  • Pulmonic valve stenosis (narrowing)
Clinical Information
  • A disorder characterized by a defect in pulmonary valve function or structure.
  • A heart disorder characterized by a defect in pulmonary valve structure or function.
  • Dysfunction of the pulmonary valve, with incomplete valve closure resulting in valvular regurgitation.
  • Narrowing of the opening between the pulmonary artery and the right ventricle, usually at the level of the valve leaflets.
  • The backflow of blood from the pulmonary artery into the right ventricle, owing to insufficiency of the pulmonic semilunar valve.
424.3 Excludes
  • that specified as rheumatic (397.1)
Applies To
  • Pulmonic:
    • incompetence NOS
    • insufficiency NOS
    • regurgitation NOS
    • stenosis NOS
Convert to ICD-10-CM: 424.3 converts approximately to:
  • 2014 ICD-10-CM I37.0 Nonrheumatic pulmonary valve stenosis
    Or:
  • 2014 ICD-10-CM I37.8 Other nonrheumatic pulmonary valve disorders

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 424.3 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?
