    I WAS THINKING MAYBE 354.2 SINCE....Guyon's canal syndrome is a common nerve compression affecting the ulnar nerve as it passes through a tunnel in the wrist called Guyon's canal. This problem is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome (ICD-9 354.0) but involves a completely different nerve.

    We always code it as 354.2 Lesion of ulnar nerve. Thats appropriate code for the condition.
