    Troponin is a protein, but we used 790.6 for elevated troponin as suggested by our Medical Director/Compliance Officer.

    Default RE:ICD Troponin leak

    "Troponin leak" implies rise in serum protein.
    Please look up finding/serum protein, it gets you to 790.99.
    Need to check if the Pt is dx'ed with MI, If 'Yes, 'need to OMIT 790.99 as integral to AMI.

    Thanks
