    Default levocardia + situs solitus

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,


    Isolated levocardia is a rare type of situs inversus in which the heart is in the normal levo
    position, but the abdominal viscera are in the dextro position.
    Reporting levocardia in this scenario is ok.
    But do you report levocardia in situs solitus?

    I feel no need to report Levocardia in situs solitus as both are normal conditions.
