Peripheral Vascular (Arterial) Disease

what is peripheral artery disease p a d
What is Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.)?
  • P.A.D. occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to your head, organs, and limbs. Plaque is made up of a fat, cholesterol, calcium, fibrous tissue and other substances in the blood.
  • When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. Over time, plaque can harden and narrow the arteries. This limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the organs and other parts of the body.
  • P.A.D. usually affects the legs, but also can affect the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the head, arms, kidneys and stomach.
  • Today’s comments will focus on P.A.D. that affects blood flow to the legs.
peripheral arterial disease pad
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Clinical description of PAD

  • Present in approximately 8 to 12 million individuals in the U.S.
  • Estimated to be present in 29% of those
    • Age 70 or over; or
    • Age 50 to 69 with a history of smoking 10 pack years or those with diabetes.1
  • History and physical examination may not be reliable for the detection of lower extremity PAD8
    • Presents with classic claudication 10% to 35% of cases
    • Many individuals have no symptoms or non-classic symptoms
    • Poor recognition (under-diagnosis) results in under-treatment (estimated only 25% of those with PAD are treated)2
peripheral arterial disease pad1
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Clinical description of PAD

  • Often caused by atherosclerosis
  • Identifies risk for myocardial infarction (also referred to as a heart attack) and stroke3
  • Causes poor blood supply to extremities
  • Symptoms worsen when demand increases (exercise)
  • As disease progresses, less exercise causes symptoms; if severe – symptoms at rest (with no movement)
  • May result in pain (disability), skin and tissue damage (ulcers) and infection (gangrene)
  • Can worsen diabetic complications such as slow healing foot ulcers
peripheral vascular arterial disease
Peripheral Vascular (Arterial) Disease

PAD Facts:

  • Most major cardiovascular events occur in those without a prior diagnosis of vascular disease.
  • Over 50%with PAD will not have previous vascular symptoms;40%have atypical symptoms.
  • It is estimated that only25%of afflicted individuals receive care
peripheral vascular arterial disease1
There are two types of PAD

Arteriosclerotic: Involves medium to large vessels and is amenable to bypass.

Diabetic: Involves medium to small vessels and is not typically helped by bypass.

Workup can be done by Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)

Can be used to diagnose PAD and can be performed in any doctor’s office

Reveals a comparison of the systolic blood pressure between the lower and upper extremities and is measured using a Doppler.

An ABI of less than or equal to 0.90 is abnormal and is considered evidence of lower extremity PAD.

Prompt investigation and risk-reducing treatments are then warranted

documentation coding pad pvd
Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD
  • Peripheral arterial disease, peripheral vascular disease, and claudicationare coded to443.9
    • It is important to note that this code excludes atherosclerosis of the arteries of the extremities.
  • Atherosclerosisof native arteries of the extremities, Category440,is further classified as such:
        • With intermittent claudication440.21
        • With rest pain440.22
        • With ulceration440.23 (see ulcer coding rules)
        • With gangrene440.24 (see ulcer coding rules)
        • Unspecified 440.20
pad documentation coding
PAD Documentation & Coding
  • Diagnostic statements that do notimpact severity adjustment as theyare coded to:

440.9: Generalized and unspecified atherosclerosis

    • Arteriosclerotic (vascular) disease
    • Generalized arteriosclerosis
    • Arteriosclerotic endarteritis
    • Arteriosclerosis obliterans
    • Arteriosclerosis with calcification
documentation coding pad pvd1
Documentation & Coding PAD / PVD

Vascular diseases often occur as a manifestation of diabetes:

  • Diabetic Peripheral Circulatory Disorders250.70-250.73
    • If the PVD is due to diabetes mellitus, codes 250.7xand 443.81 would be assigned.
      • The specificity of the PVD changes to 443.81, Peripheral Angiopathy in diabetes mellitus.
      • Code 443.81 provides a more comprehensive picture of the patient’s PAD/PVD condition in regard to DM as an underlying cause.
    • Provide the appropriatelinkagefor the diabetes with Peripheral Circulatory Manifestations (250.7x)

underlying disease diabetes mellitus
Underlying Disease – Diabetes Mellitus
  • A patient with Type II controlled Diabetes that has treatment for a manifestation of the disease should have both conditions coded:
    • PVD due toDiabetes Mellitus
      • 250.70Diabetes with peripheral circulatory disorder
      • 443.81 Peripheral angiopathy in disease classified elsewhere
  • The underlying disease is coded first, followed by the manifestation code.
  • The linkage has been documented with “due to”and the4thdigit is properly assigned on the250.
pad diagnosis coding
PAD Diagnosis Coding

Peripheral Vascular diseases as a result of atherosclerosis of extremities:

  • Atherosclerosis of Native arteries of the Extremities(440.2 subcategory).
    • For coding purposes, the physician must document that the PVD is due to atherosclerosis (ASPVD) before a code from 440.2may be assigned.
    • In fact, Coding Clinic advises to query the physician for further specification if the physician documents vague diagnoses as peripheral vascular disease or intermittent claudication.

rules of coding pad pvd ischemic ulcers
Rules of Coding PAD / PVD: Ischemic Ulcers

Subcategory707.1xUlcer of lower limbs, exceptpressure ulcer

▪ First: Code any underlying or causal condition


- 440.23– Atherosclerosis of Extremities w/ Ulceration

707.10 – Ulcer of lower limb, unspecified

707.11– Ulcer of thigh

707.12– Ulcer of calf

707.13– Ulcer of ankle

707.14 – Ulcer of heel and midfoot

clinical example
Clinical Example
  • Exam:  S1S2 no murmur or gallop with regular rhythm. Radial pulses 2+. Feet cool with left pedal faint and absent rt pedal pulse. No edema. Hemosiderin stain of both anterior LE.
  • Dx:  443.9
  • A/P Stable PVD.
  • Comments: “Stable PVD.” represents a definitive diagnosis. This is correct coding.
clinical example1
Clinical Example
  • HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: L ankle wound: Had ankle fx 12/07, with small open area on medial aspect of her ankle that heals over and then reopens.
  • REVIEW OF SYSTEMS VASCULAR: ULCER: Inner left malleolus has non-healing wound.  POSITIVE FOR: Ulcer 
  • PHYSICAL EXAMVASCULAR: 1+ pedal pulse on R. Foot warm w/sensation. No reddened or open areas.
clinical example2
Clinical Example
  • Diagnosis :440.23 - Atherosclerosis of native arteries of the extremities with ulceration
    • Treatment Plan : STATUS: Has open area on inner aspect of left malleolus. very difficult to heal with probable osteomyelitis. Will continue wound healing measures and conservative interventions if wound worsens. 
  • Diagnosis :707.13 - Ulcer of ankle
    • Treatment Plan : STATUS: Chronic, PLAN: Had ankle fracture 12'07. has had an open area on the medial aspect of her left ankle that heals over, opens up, heals over, etc. 6'08 has open area 1 cm that has a pinpoint hole in the center. a shiny metal piece is visible which is probably a plate or screw that was used to fix the ankle fracture. xray ordered to r/o osteo.   
clinical example3
Clinical Example
  • Comments:
  • ROS documentation states: VASCULAR: ULCER:Inner left malleolus has non-healing wound.POSITIVE FOR:Ulcer 
  • Is this an ulcer or a non-healing surgical wound?
    • The code for ulcer of the ankle is 707.13. It maps to HCC 149 with a RAF of 0.241.
    • The code for non-healing surgical wound is 998.83. It does not risk adjust.
clinical example4
Clinical Example
  • Atherosclerosis is never mentioned in the documentation. Inorder to code 440.23 - Atherosclerosis of native arteries of the extremities with ulceration, the documentation must state atherosclerosis, ASPVD or atherosclerotic PVD, etc.
    • 440.23 maps to HCC 104 with a RAF of 0.482.
  • An argument could be made that the documentation does not support the codes reported.
  • According to the documentation, the correct codes for this scenario would be 998.83, and 443.9.
    • 998.83 does not risk adjust.
    • 443.9 maps to HCC 105 with a RAF of 0.165.
  • Specific documentation can make a big difference!
