424.1: The closest I have been able to find is 424.1, aortic valve disorders. I cannot find a specific code for stenosis.

424.1: There is no specific code for aortic stenosis. There is only a code for aortic valve disease. There is also a code specifically for rheumatic aortic stenosis which is 395.0 finally there is 395.2 which is for rheumatic aortic stenosis and insufficiency.
