Recent advances in heart valve procedures have moved many of these procedures from the OR to the cath lab. In this webinar, we will talk about heart valve anatomy and common types of valve repair and replacement. We will address combination coding for multiple valve disease, ICD-10-CM codes for history of heart valve replacement, and walk through procedure reports for open, transcatheter, and transapical approaches to heart valve procedures.
- Determine when to use a rheumatic code for valve disease
- Differentiate between mechanical and bioprosthetic heart valves
- Recognize the procedure approach for open, transcatheter, and transapical heart valves
