need some input on this scenario..

if a pt was seen for open treatment of a dislocated hip, but has complications and returns to the OR within a month for wound dehiscence from the initial procedure, would it be appropriate to code 11010 or 13160?

there is no dislocation of the hip at the second encounter - just cleaning & removing of dehisced tissue.

thank you!
