I37.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of nonrheumatic pulmonary valve stenosis with insufficiency. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code I372 is used to code Pulmonary valve stenosis
Pulmonary valve stenosis (PVS) is a heart valve disorder in which outflow of blood from the right ventricle of the heart is obstructed at the level of the pulmonic valve. This results in the reduction of flow of blood to the lungs. Valvular pulmonic stenosis accounts for 80% of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction. While the most common cause of pulmonary valve stenosis is congenital heart disease, it may also be due to a malignant carcinoid tumor. Both stenosis of the pulmonary artery and pulmonary valve stenosis are causes of pulmonic stenosis.
