hi, i am so curious as to why i read medical records that document chronic atrial fibrillation when there is no code for this, all atrial fibrillations seem to fall under 427.31.. isn't a fib, a fib? increased risk for stroke regardless, right? someone please either link or differentiate a fib vs. chronic a fib and why there is no icd-9 diagnosis code for the chronic one. thank you!
