    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, All!!

    I've been looking for an ICD-9 code for a groin pseudoaneurysm (not an AAA) for the last half hour.

    Can anyone help?

    Can code ICD - 442.2;


  3. #3


    Check under ICD-9 code 442.2

  4. #4


    Unless the physician specifies a specific artery/vessel, you would have to use 442.89-aneurysm of specified site. Check the documentation before you assign the iliac artery.
