ICD-10-CM Code K76.1
Chronic passive congestion of liver
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
K76.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of chronic passive congestion of liver. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code K761 is used to code Congestive hepatopathy
Congestive hepatopathy, also known as nutmeg liver and chronic passive congestion of the liver, is liver dysfunction due to venous congestion, usually due to congestive heart failure. The gross pathological appearance of a liver affected by chronic passive congestion is "speckled" like a grated nutmeg kernel; the dark spots represent the dilated and congested hepatic venules and small hepatic veins. The paler areas are unaffected surrounding liver tissue. When severe and longstanding, hepatic congestion can lead to fibrosis; if congestion is due to right heart failure, it is called cardiac cirrhosis.
