While looking through a report today I came across angioectasia found in the ascending colon, could anyone assist me with the correct code for this?

Angioectasia

It is my understanding that to bill for angioectasia of the ascending colon you should bill for angiodysplasia of intestine ICD-9 code 569.84 (w/o mention of hemorrhage) or 569.85 (w/ mention of hemorrhage).

Hope this helps! :D
