    Default Tensor fasciae latae syndrome

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any idea what the icd-9 code would be for this condition? I am coming up blank. Thanks :-)

    Tensor fasciae latae syndrome is the same as iliotibial band syndrome. The Tensor Fasciae Latae is a small muscle which attaches inferiorly to the long thick strip of fascia, known at the iliotibial band (ITB).

    Using coding software ITB friction syndrome is 72889.

    Hope this helps.
