I77.4: Coeliac artery compression syndrome
A large artery in your abdomen has narrowed.
Arteries are blood vessels that transport blood away from the heart. This is how all the tissue in the body is supplied with oxygen-rich blood.
The artery that is affected supplies blood to the liver, stomach and the first part of the intestine, for example. If this artery narrows, one may have severe abdominal pain. The stomach pains often occur after one has eaten.
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
