Vote of Thanks Expressed in Last Coding Clinic®
2014-05-13

Volume 31, Number 1 of AHA Coding Clinic® for ICD-9-CM bids farewell after 30 years of excellence in coding advice because of the transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS. On behalf of AHA’s Central Office, this last issue expresses sincere gratitude to everyone who helped in improving the accuracy and uniformity of health information. The issue also includes FAQs with reference to clinical issues regarding atypical meningioma, electrical status epilepticus of sleep, LINX reflux management system, renal denervation, and much more. Certain updates like bacteremia due to a PICC line, preterm premature rupture of membranes and preterm delivery, and foreign bodies left during surgeries are also covered in this issue.
