I25.0: Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, so described
You have narrowed blood vessels.
Blood vessels in your heart and in other parts of your body may be affected.
Deposits of fat and calcium in the blood vessel walls may cause blood vessels to narrow. When blood vessels narrow too much, not enough blood can flow through them. This can cause problems.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
- A: Excluded diagnosis
- L: Left
- R: Right
- B: Both sides
