Abstract

Letters cussion section, we suggest that therapies to curb atheroma So how should we code myocardial injury? It goes with- progression and induce regression, such as statins, may be a out saying that a separate ICD-10 code for nonischemic myo- potential intervention among those with higher BPV. Further cardial injury would be helpful. Short of that, leaders in the studies are required to evaluate underlying mechanisms and American College of Cardiology have advocated for use of the therapeutic implications of the observed association between term non-MI troponin elevation (nMITE) as a way to clearly dif- BPV, coronary atheroma progression, and adverse cardiovas- ferentiate patients with myocardial injury from patients with cular outcomes. type 1 MI for nonclinical coding personnel. We are in the pro- cess of implementing this recommendation at our institu- Donald Clark III, MD, MPH tion.
