Thread: Icd9 help!

    Question Icd9 help!

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone tell me what ICD9 you would use for atrial enlargement

  2. #2


    For atrial enlargement, I would capture the code 429.89 carditis, because carditis is inflammation of the heart or its surroundings and the atria are 2 of the chambers of the heart. I hope this helped. TW, CPC
