H91.02 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of ototoxic hearing loss, left ear. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code H910 is used to code Ototoxicity

Ototoxicity is the property of being toxic to the ear (oto-), specifically the cochlea or auditory nerve and sometimes the vestibular system, for example, as a side effect of a drug. Ototoxic drugs include antibiotics such as gentamicin, loop diuretics such as furosemide and platinum-based chemotherapy agents such as cisplatin. A number of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) have also been shown to be ototoxic. This can result in sensorineural hearing loss, dysequilibrium, or both. The effects of ototoxicity can be reversible and temporary, or irreversible and permanent.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Other specified forms of hearing loss (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code H91.02 and a single ICD9 code, 389.8 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
