ICD9 for baseline testing prior to PE tube removal

Can anyone help me determine what the primary ICD9 on this visit should be?

Patient is being seen at an audiology clinic for baseline testing prior to PE tube extraction.

All testing showed normal results and function.

Any suggestions on what the ICD9 code should be?

I think

I would use the original diagnosis- Otitis, etc. that warranted the tube

ICD for baseline hearing

Thanks. That is what I would think as well but unfortunately he didn't document the reason for the tubes. I will notify him of this. Thanks for the advice.
