    Question Need DX for ventricular mass HELP!!!

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been trying to find a code for ventricular mass and keep finding things about hypertrophy... Would this be the same thing? I have code 429.3 but I want the correct answer, can someone point me in the right direction??
