| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code I69 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the six child codes of I69 that describes the diagnosis 'sequelae of cerebrovascular disease' in more detail.

The ICD code I69 is used to code Cerebrovascular disease

Cerebrovascular disease, stroke or cerebrovascular accident, is a vascular disease of the cerebral circulation. Arteries supplying oxygen to the brain are affected resulting in one of a number of cerebrovascular diseases. Most commonly this is a stroke or mini-stroke and sometimes can be a hemorrhagic stroke. Any of these can result in vascular dementia.
