If the operative report has biliary dyskinesia as the post-op diagnosis and the path report says chronic cholecystitis do you code both? I am not sure if biliary dysknesia is considered a sign or symptom of cholecystitis.
Thanks!

Hi,

When ever possible, you should code the diagnosis from the Path Report. This is a more definitive diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
