    Default Lateral patella compression syndrome

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would 719.46 be the right dx for patella compession syndrome ?

    Wink Icd 9 cm code for lateral patellar compression syndrome

    ICD 9-CM code 719.46 is simply pain in the knee.
    I would use 717.89 for other internal derangement of the knee.

    I hope this helps!
