    Cardiovascular disorders originating in the perinatal period

      2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
    Type 1 Excludes
    • congenital malformations of the circulatory system (Q20-Q28)
    Cardiovascular disorders originating in the perinatal period
Approximate Synonyms
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn
  • Pulmonary hypertension of infant
Clinical Information
  • A cardiopulmonary syndrome characterized by hypoxemia due to increased pulmonary vascular resistance and subsequent right-to-left shunting of the blood through the foramen ovale and ductus arteriosus.
  • A syndrome of persistent pulmonary hypertension in the newborn infant (infant, newborn) without demonstrable heart diseases. This neonatal condition can be caused by severe pulmonary vasoconstriction (reactive type), hypertrophy of pulmonary arterial muscle (hypertrophic type), or abnormally developed pulmonary arterioles (hypoplastic type). The newborn patient exhibits cyanosis and acidosis due to the persistence of fetal circulatory pattern of right-to-left shunting of blood through a patent ductus arteriosus (ductus arteriosus, patent) and at times a patent foramen ovale (foramen ovale, patent).
