I have a case her that states the patient has a small bowel obstruction due to a retained endoscopic capsule. I'm trying to code it and I keep just going in circles! What are the correct codes for this scenario? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My suggestion is check under T18. I've searched and those code seem to be the best fit. I do not code gastro so I'm not 100%.

Yes I have the T18.3 code but I'm unsure if there should be a complication code as well? I can't seem to find one that fits. Any ideas?

Thanks for the help!
