The ICD code G819 is used to code Hemiparesis

Hemiparesis is weakness of the entire left or right side of the body. Hemiplegia is, in its most severe form, complete paralysis of half of the body. Hemiparesis and hemiplegia can be caused by different medical conditions, including congenital causes, trauma, tumors, or stroke.
