    Default Claudication Icd-9-cm

    I need a dx for claudication of lower extremities. I cannot use 443.9 because the physician states in his note states that when the doctor reviewed labs "no PVD was suggested". I am unable to find a code for Claudication, NOS. Can I use 729.5 Pain in Limb?

    Default

    The code for intermittent claudication NOS is 443.9. I would suggest going with the same code. If the symptomatology is suggesting otherwise, I think, we can go with 447.8.
    Thanks,
