Refractory Angina Pectoris

New codes were assigned for refractory angina pectoris in FY 2023. These codes will differentiate refractory angina pectoris from other angina types and help ensure precise data collection coding.

Chronic refractory angina pectoris is angina caused by irreversible ischemia, lasting more than three months, and not controlled by a combination of medication, PCI, or CABG. Caring for patients with refractory angina pectoris is challenging since treatment options are limited and further revascularization is contraindicated. These patients are unsuitable for or at higher risk for PCI and CABG surgery.
