ICD 9 codes

Joseph Posted Mon 04th of June, 2012 13:23:54 PM

Could you please give me the icd 9 codes for the following definitions? Delayed Bolus Transit, Hypertensive Esophageal Shincter, Hypotensive Esophageal Spincter, and unspecified esophageal dysmotility. These are manometry findings and I cannot find codes that match these diagnosis. Should they all fall under 530.89 ( other specified disorders of the esophagus)? Thanks for your help.
