Endovascular closure of patent ductus arteriosus (IPG97)
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on endovascular closure of patent ductus arteriosus.
This procedure is used to repair the patent arterial duct.
The arterial duct is a normal fetal communicating vessel between the pulmonary artery and the aorta. It usually closes within the first few days of life. If it remains open (patent), blood continues to flow from the aorta to the pulmonary artery, which eventually damages the lungs.
Endovascular techniques for closing patent arterial ducts are minimally invasive procedures in which the device is passed into the duct under X-ray control through a large vein. Standard treatment involves open surgery.
L03.1 Percutaneous transluminal prosthetic occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus
Y53.- Approach to organ under image control
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
