    Default ICD-9 coding of CVA & cause of CVA
    Medical Coding Books
    If you know the cause of the pts CVA was subarachnoid hemorrhage, or subdural hematoma, do you code both CVA 434.91 AND the cause such as 432.1 for subdural hematoma?
    Thanks for your time

    The subdural hemorrahge is just coded... there is not instructions to code CVA NOS... which is what 434.91 is.

    The subdural hemorrhage is a kind of CVA
