    Any and all input appreciated!

    Report impression states "degenerative changes of hand and ankle"...that's it.

    Would 715.94 & 715.97 be most appropriate or 715.34 & confused!

    715.94 & 715.97 because the "report" did not specify if the osteoarthrosis was "localized or generalized".
