    There is a coding clinic on this page 22 april 2000 which says to use 570 for shock liver.
    Hope that helps.

    Shock liver/CHF

    A patient with end-stage cardiomyopathy was admitted with decompensated CHF. The patient had a sudden episode of hypotension, increased BUN/creatine, metabolic acidosis, increased liver enzymes, and renal and heart failure. A diagnosis of “liver shock” was made. The principal diagnosis is CHF (428.0) with secondary diagnoses of shock liver (570), acute renal failure (584.9) and end-stage cardiomyopathy (425.4). (See Coding Clinic, first quarter 2000, page 22.)
