ICD-10 Codes for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Coronary artery disease, also known as CAD, develops when the major blood vessels that supply your heart become damaged or diseased. Cholesterol-containing deposits (plaques) in your coronary arteries and inflammation are usually to blame for coronary artery disease.

The coronary arteries supply blood, oxygen, and nutrients to your heart. A buildup of plaque can narrow these arteries, decreasing blood flow to your heart. Eventually, the reduced blood flow may cause chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, or other coronary artery disease signs and symptoms. A complete blockage can cause a heart attack. Because coronary artery disease often develops over decades, you might not notice a problem until you have a significant blockage or a heart attack. But you can take steps to prevent and treat coronary artery disease. A healthy lifestyle can make a big impact.

Symptoms of CAD

If your coronary arteries narrow, they can’t supply enough oxygen-rich blood to your heart — especially when it’s beating hard, such as during exercise. At first, the decreased blood flow may not cause any symptoms. As plaque continues to build up in your coronary arteries, however, you may develop the following coronary artery disease signs and symptoms: chest pain (you may feel pressure or tightness in your chest, usually occuring on the middle or left side of the chest), shortness of breath (if your heart can’t pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs, you may develop shortness of breath or extreme fatigue with activity), and a heart attack (a completely blocked coronary artery will cause a heart attack, the classic signs and symptoms of which include crushing pressure in your chest and pain in your shoulder or arm).

Treatment for CAD

It’s important to reduce or control your risk factors and seek treatment to lower the chance of a heart attack or stroke, if you’re diagnosed with CAD. Treatment also depends on your current health condition, risk factors, and overall wellbeing. For example, your doctor may prescribe medication therapy to treat high cholesterol or high blood pressure, or you may receive medication to control blood sugar if you have diabetes. Lifestyle changes can also reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. For example quit smoking, reduce consumption of alchol, excercise regularly, lose weight to a healthy level, and eat a healthy diet. If your condition doesn’t improve with lifestyle changes and medication, your doctor may recommend a procedure to increase blood flow to your heart. These procedures may be balloon angioplasty (to widen blocked arteries and smoosh down the plaque buildup), coronary artery bypass graft surgery (to restore blood flow to the heart in open chest surgery), and an enhanced external counterpulsation (to stimulate the formation of new small blood vessels to naturally bypass clogged arteries in a noninvasive procedure).
