DX code for severely depressed left ventricular systolic function

  1. Post DX code for severely depressed left ventricular systolic function
    Medical Coding Books
    Everything I've found refers to 429.9, is there a more specific code?

  2. #2
    That is the code I use unless they specify that the patient also has congestive heart failure then I would go to the 428.2_ section.
