Specific code icon 2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code Q21.2

Atrioventricular septal defect

    2015 Billable Code POA Exempt

  • Q21.2 is a billable ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, Q21.2 - and all other ICD-10-CM codes - should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of Q21.2. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.

Clinical Information
  • A spectrum of septal defects involving the atrial septum; ventricular septum; and the atrioventricular valves (tricuspid valve; bicuspid valve). These defects are due to incomplete growth and fusion of the endocardial cushions which are important in the formation of two atrioventricular canals, site of future atrioventricular valves.
Applicable To
  • Common atrioventricular canal
  • Endocardial cushion defect
  • Ostium primum atrial septal defect (type I)
Description Synonyms
  • Atrial septal defect, ostium primum type
  • Atrial septal defect, primum
  • Ostium primum defect
Present On Admission
  • Q21.2 is considered exempt from POA reporting.
ICD-10-CM Q21.2 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v30.0):
  • 306 Cardiac congenital & valvular disorders with mcc
  • 307 Cardiac congenital & valvular disorders without mcc
