Link: A NEUROLOGIST’S GUIDE TO USING ICD-9-CM CODES FOR CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASES

ICD-9-CM codes for cerebrovascular diseases is not “user friendly”. This
presentation is designed to assist neurologists in choosing proper ICD-9-CM
codes by using a cross-walk to more familiar terms. The user is strongly
encouraged to re-refer to ICD-9-CM Volume 1 after choosing a code here to be
sure there are no other instructions which would indicate using a different code
for this situation.

This is a PDF guide, A NEUROLOGIST’S GUIDE TO USING ICD-9-CM CODES FOR CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASES, as a tool for helping neurologists code files indicating the correct diagnosis/syndromes. This appears to be applicable for the United States only. This is linked to for research and educational use.

Administrative health data are frequently used for large population-based studies. However, the validity of these data for identifying neurologic conditions is uncertain.

This may rest in the realm of research obscura; however, it may benefit some who dig through their records or come across coding in their search for answers.
