    Default Type 2 Myocardial Infarction

    Is there a code specific to type 2 myocardial infarction?

    Thanks

    Type 2 – Myocardial infarction secondary to ischemia due to either increased oxygen demand or decreased supply, e.g. coronary artery spasm, coronary embolism, anaemia, arrhythmias, hypertension, or hypotension. So I would say that you code the MI (acute or old) and also code the secondary condition.
