    Congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal abnormalities

    Note
    • Codes from this chapter are not for use on maternal records
    Type 2 Excludes
    • inborn errors of metabolism (E70-E88)
    Congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal abnormalities
Approximate Synonyms
  • Patent ductus arteriosus with left to right shunt
  • Patent ductus arteriosus with right to left shunt
Clinical Information
  • A congenital defect characterized by the failure of the ductus arteriosus to close soon after birth. As a consequence, blood from the aorta mixes with blood from the pulmonary artery. If untreated, it may lead to congestive heart failure.
  • A congenital heart defect characterized by the persistent opening of fetal ductus arteriosus that connects the pulmonary artery to the descending aorta (aorta, descending) allowing unoxygenated blood to bypass the lung and flow to the placenta. Normally, the ductus is closed shortly after birth.
  • Abnormal persistence of an open lumen in the ductus arteriosus after birth, the direction of flow being from the aorta to the pulmonary artery, resulting in recirculation of arterial blood through the lungs.
Present On Admission
POA Help
"Present On Admission" is defined as present at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs — conditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation, or outpatient surgery, are considered POA.
  • Q25.0 is considered exempt from POA reporting.
ICD-10-CM Q25.0 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v37.0):
  • 306 Cardiac congenital and valvular disorders with mcc
  • 307 Cardiac congenital and valvular disorders without mcc
