I code for an Anesthesia group. I have been getting stuck on my OB consults for patients who have had issues with past pregnancies such as difficult spinal or epidural placement. I cannot find a diagnosis code to fit that situation. There is adverse affects of anesthesia, but this is not an adverse affect of the drug itself, just placement. Help!!!

if the procedure carried out with difficulty, then no dx for this
