Thanks Christian and Fabricio, I appreciate the quick responses.
I did find the risk calculator for ASCVD in my search of this forum and I do have that in my team’s CDM (I think). however, I was looking more for a standard/consensus on what set of clinical codes would qualify as indicating the presence of clinical ASCVD.
I have seen AHA/ACC define clinical ASCVD as:
“Clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) includes acute coronary syndrome (ACS), those with history of myocardial infarction (MI),stable or unstable angina or coronary or other arterial revascularization, stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or peripheral artery disease (PAD) including aortic aneurysm, all of atherosclerotic origin”
Through my own struggling attempt at neatly defining a set of ICD 10 diagnosis codes for these outcomes, I have found that it is not as simple as 1) find SNOMED terms for clinical outcomes and 2) map them to ICD10. For example, some of these clinical outcomes can have non-atherosclerotic origins related to pregnancy.
This was the motivation for my question which is basically, has anyone sifted through diagnosis codes (or possibly procedure codes if that applies) for each of component artery diseases in the definition above. If they have, where can I locate that set of codes or concept IDs they used. Or is there interest in doing that?
