I67.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of dissection of cerebral arteries, nonruptured. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code I670 is used to code Vertebral artery dissection
Vertebral artery dissection (abbreviated VAD, often vertebral dissection) is a dissection (a flap-like tear) of the inner lining of the vertebral artery, which is located in the neck and supplies blood to the brain. After the tear, blood enters the arterial wall and forms a blood clot, thickening the artery wall and often impeding blood flow. The symptoms of vertebral artery dissection include head and neck pain and intermittent or permanent stroke symptoms such as difficulty speaking, impaired coordination and visual loss. It is usually diagnosed with a contrast-enhanced CT or MRI scan.
