Pt. continued to have pain after Essure procedure. Physician did laparoscopy to determine source of pain and found Essure device had broken and was partially visible in the pelvis. She had adhesions from the sigmoid to the uterus as well as tube & ovary. The long portion of the device had perforated the tube and was embedded. It was freed from the adhesion and there was no perforation to the uterus or colon. After retrieval, the tube was fulgurated. Can you tell me how to code this? Thanks!:confused:
