A patient with single left ventricular (LV) dominant atrioventricular valve physiology, who is status post Fontan procedure, presented with moderate to severe atrioventricular valve regurgitation. After attempts to repair the valve, the regurgitation persisted and the decision was made to replace the atrioventricular (AV) valve. The AV valve was cut out and circumferential pledgeted sutures were placed around the valve. A porcine bioprosthetic mitral valve was inserted. What is the correct code for replacement of the atrioventricular valve?
Assign the following procedure code:
02RG08Z Replacement of mitral valve with zooplastic tissue, open approach, for the replacement of the atrioventricular valve with a bioprosthetic mitral valve
The atrioventricular valve includes the mitral and tricuspid valve. There is no code in ICD-10-PCS to capture replacement of the AV valve that is not further specified. Therefore, since the provider documented placement of a mitral valve, code 02RG08Z is the best available option.
