Incomplete abortion and retained products of conception

I have a Medicode book that explains the ob/gyn procedures codes. It states that the D & E is usually performed by suctioning curretage but a sharp curet may also be used to scrape the uterus to ensure that it is empty. Depending on the trimester - I would use 59812, 59820 or 59821
