Absence epileptic syndrome. G40.A should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail. The 2019 edition of ICD-10-CM G40.A became effective on October 1, 2018.
G40.A19 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. Short description: Absence epileptic syndrome, intractable, w/o stat epi. The 2019 edition of ICD-10-CM G40.A19 became effective on October 1, 2018.
Absence epileptic syndrome. Rhythmic blinking of the eyelids or lip smacking frequently accompanies the seizures. The usual duration is 5-10 seconds, and multiple episodes may occur daily. Juvenile absence epilepsy is characterized by the juvenile onset of absence seizures and an increased incidence of myoclonus and tonic-clonic seizures.
Petit mal status ICD-10-CM G40.A01 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group (s) (MS-DRG v38.0): 023 Craniotomy with major device implant or acute complex cns principal diagnosis with mcc or chemotherapy implant or epilepsy with neurostimulator 100 Seizures with mcc
Epilepsy, unspecified, not intractable A group of disorders marked by problems in the normal functioning of the brain. These problems can produce seizures, unusual body movements, a loss of consciousness or changes in consciousness, as well as mental problems or problems with the senses.
Generalized idiopathic epilepsy and epileptic syndromes, not intractable, without status epilepticus. G40. 309 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
Intractable epilepsy is when seizures can't be completely controlled by medicines. (Intractable means "not easily managed or relieved.") It's also called refractory, uncontrolled, or drug-resistant epilepsy.
Absence seizures are a type of epilepsy, a condition that causes seizures. Seizures are caused by abnormal brain activity. These mixed messages confuse your brain and cause a seizure.
ICD-10 code G40. A09 for Absence epileptic syndrome, not intractable, without status epilepticus is a medical classification as listed by WHO under the range - Diseases of the nervous system .
1 : not easily governed, managed, or directed intractable problems. 2 : not easily relieved or cured intractable pain.
What is a not intractable migraine? An intractable migraine causes severe pain that extends beyond 72 hours and usually requires a hospital visit for treatment. Comparatively, a not intractable migraine typically lasts up to 72 hours and can be treated with migraine medications.
Intractable means "hard to control or deal with" and is often used in the medical world to describe a condition that does not respond readily to medication. An ICD-9 record could say "tension headache" and the code might be: 339.10 Tension type headache, unspecified.
Intractable essentially means difficult to treat or manage. This type of pain isn't curable, so the focus of treatment is to reduce your discomfort. The condition is also known as intractable pain disease, or IP.
An absence seizure is a generalized onset seizure, which means it begins in both sides of the brain at the same time. An older term is petit mal seizures. Absence seizures usually affect only a person's awareness of what is going on at that time, with immediate recovery.
Although absences are considered a paradigm of primarily generalized seizures, they may occasionally be of focal onset (focal onset generalized absence seizures), usually arising from focal brain pathology.
Childhood Absence Epilepsy Most children with this type of epilepsy have no other seizures during childhood, but about one-third of them will develop generalized tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizures later, often in adolescence.
Absence epileptic syndrome, not intractable 1 G40.A0 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail. 2 The 2021 edition of ICD-10-CM G40.A0 became effective on October 1, 2020. 3 This is the American ICD-10-CM version of G40.A0 - other international versions of ICD-10 G40.A0 may differ.

Paroxysmal attacks or paroxysms (from Greek παροξυσμός) are a sudden recurrence or intensification of symptoms, such as a spasm or seizure. These short, frequent, and stereotyped symptoms can be observed in various clinical conditions.
