I24.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of acute coronary thrombosis not resulting in myocardial infarction. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code I240 is used to code Coronary thrombosis

Coronary thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel of the heart. This blood clot restricts blood flow within the heart. It is associated with narrowing of blood vessels subsequent to clotting. The condition is considered as a type of ischaemic heart disease.

Inclusion Terms:
Inclusion Terms
Inclusion Terms are a list of concepts for which a specific code is used. The list of Inclusion Terms is useful for determining the correct code in some cases, but the list is not necessarily exhaustive.
Acute coronary (artery) (vein) embolism not resulting in myocardial infarction
Acute coronary (artery) (vein) occlusion not resulting in myocardial infarction
Acute coronary (artery) (vein) thromboembolism not resulting in myocardial infarction
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Atherosclerotic heart disease - instead, use code I25.1-

MS-DRG Mapping

  • DRG Group #311 - Angina pectoris.

Coding Advice SNOMET-CT

  • Consider additional code to identify specific condition or disease


Acute coronary occlusion without myocardial infarction (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 411.81 was previously used, I24.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
