ICD-10-CM Code I49.3
Ventricular premature depolarization
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
I49.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of ventricular premature depolarization. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code I493 is used to code Premature ventricular contraction
A premature ventricular contraction (PVC) — also known as a premature ventricular complex, ventricular premature contraction (or complex or complexes) (VPC), ventricular premature beat (VPB), or ventricular extrasystole (VES) — is a relatively common event where the heartbeat is initiated by Purkinje fibers in the ventricles rather than by the sinoatrial node, the normal heartbeat initiator. The electrical events of the heart detected by the electrocardiogram (ECG) allow a PVC to be easily distinguished from a normal heart beat. Although a PVC can be a sign of decreased oxygenation to the heart muscle, often PVCs are benign and may even be found in otherwise healthy hearts.

- DRG Group #308-310 - Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction disorders with CC.
- DRG Group #308-310 - Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction disorders without CC or MCC.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
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 I49.3 and a single ICD9 code, 427.69 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
