My dr saw a patient due to infected mesh, from previous hernia surg, not performed by him.
what dx would I use to describe the mesh infection?
Thanks so much for your help!

infected mesh

Try 996.69 infection and inflammatory reaction due to internal prosthetic device/implant/graft.
in ICD-9 look at complication-infection due to any device, implant or graft- specified type NEC codes to 996.69.
