Well unless the physician states a causal relationship for 402.90, I would go with 401.9 (as long as not documented as benign or malignant).

See ICD-9 pg. 12 (I have the Optum-Ingenix book)

Therefore, when physician just stated hypertension with atrial flutter did not qualify for the casual relationship as word "due to" or "associates to" not use.
