    Default Drop Attacks

    Would you use code 780.2 for this condition?
    Thanks

    Per an online resource:
    Drop attack, not further specified, is coded 780.2, syncope and collapse. Drop attack
    associated with transient cerebral ischemia is coded 435.9, unspecified transient cerebral
    ischemia. (See Coding Clinic, November - December 1985, page 12.)
    Hope that helps.
