This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
- Dressler's syndrome is a type of pericarditis — inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart (pericardium). Dressler's syndrome is an immune system response after damage to heart tissue or to the pericardium, from events such as a heart attack, surgery or traumatic injury. It can occur up to months after the acute MI.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
Candidate Combined ICD10 codes
- If the AMI occurred in the same hospitalization, also code it as an Admit Diagnosis or hospital-Acquired Diagnosis, as appropriate.
- If the AMI occurred before the current hospitalization, code the AMI as a Comorbid Diagnosis.
- shouldn't that be Past history, myocardial infarction (old MI) instead? ]]
