Balloon dilatation of pulmonary valve stenosis (IPG67)
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on balloon dilatation of pulmonary valve stenosis.
This procedure is used to treat pulmonary valve stenosis. Pulmonary valve stenosis is narrowing of the pulmonary valve in the heart. It is usually congenital.
Balloon dilatation is a minimally invasive transvenous procedure to dilate the pulmonary valve orifice during cardiac catheterisation. The procedure is an alternative to open surgical valvotomy.
K35.5 Percutaneous transluminal valvuloplasty
Includes: Percutaneous transluminal balloon valvuloplasty
Y53.- Approach to organ under image control
Z32.4 Pulmonary valve
Note: Codes within category Y53.- are used as secondary codes to classify interventions that are percutaneous and require some form of image control: if the method of image control is unspecified, Y53.9 Unspecified approach to organ under image control is assigned.
The NHS Classifications Service of NHS Connecting for Health is the central definitive source for clinical coding guidance and determines the coding standards associated with the classifications (OPCS-4 and ICD-10) to be used across the NHS. The NHS Classifications Service and NICE work collaboratively to ensure the most appropriate classification codes are provided. www.connectingforhealth.co.uk/clinicalcoding
