ICD-9 code for multiple stroke syndrom

    How would one code multiple stroke syndrome? With 436? Any experts out there? Thanks!

    The ICD-9 manual indexes as follows:

    stroke (see also Disease, cerebrovascular, acute) 436

    acute 436

  2. Default
    I always code 436 unless they are specific.
