ICD-10-CM Code D68.51
Activated protein C resistance
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D68.51 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of activated protein C resistance. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D685 is used to code Protein S deficiency
Protein S deficiency is a disorder associated with increased risk of venous thrombosis. Protein S, a vitamin K-dependent physiological anticoagulant, acts as a nonenzymatic cofactor to activate protein C in the proteolytic degradation of factor Va and factor VIIIa. Decreased (antigen) levels or impaired function (activity) of protein S leads to decreased degradation of factor Va and factor VIIIa and an increased propensity to venous thrombosis. Protein S circulates in human plasma in two forms: approximately 60 percent is bound to complement component C4b β-chain while the remaining 40 percent is free. Only free protein S has activated protein C cofactor activity.
