Does anyone know what the ICD-9 code would be for the removal of an IV Port-a-Cath? I believe it is V58.81 but want to be sure.

Thanks! ;)

Patti this is a great question and I wonder if you ever got an answer. I have a healthy patient who is getting hers removed. I hate to use v codes a primary dx. I wonder if anyone has a thought on this.
