    Default ICD 9 Code for Left Ventricle Dysfunction

    I have been searching for a code for left ventricle dysfunction. I have been able to find codes for Left ventricle hypertrophy and heart failure. However I cannot locate a specific code for just the dysfunction. I am pretty sure that the physician has to state heart failure before I can use the 428.0 code. Does anyone have a code just for the dysfunction? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
