V62.84 - can this be used as a primary code?

v62.84
 
There was a chart found in the ICD-9 for 2010, listed in the coding guidelines that had it as a third DX code placement. The books no longer contain the chart. Hope that helps :)

The chart never had a column for 3rd listed , there was first- only, second only or either first or second. I do believe this code is acceptable as either first or secondary.

Secondary only
 
In the coding books it is highlighted for Secondary dx only. My question is, what dx would you use as primary if this is the dx the provider used? Thanks!
