    Can anyone help with the correct icd-9 code for atrial septal aneurysm/ patent foramen ovale?

    Default Icd-9 code reference

    745.5 ostium secundum type atrial septum defect fpr patent or persistent foramen ovale. that is is the 2009 version of the icd 9 - cm code book it may be different in this years but I don't think it is. I hope this helps

    Yes, 745.5 . If patient's is adult (15-124) then consider defect atrial septum 429.71.

    I think, if you'll search ASD/PFO on Wikipedia then you'll get the other details regarding that. Hope this is helpful.
