EGD: Endoscopy with/ without risk factors on Table of Risk


Best answers

I was wondering if an EGD, which does have risk factors (perforation, bleeding, infection) but the potential of these risk factors is slim to none, would that still count as "endoscopy with risk factors" on the Table of Risk (level 5 MDM)?
