The patient underwent a scheduled TLH. Upon examining the patient at the conclusion of the procedure, 2 vaginal lacerations (one perineal and one left posterior lateral) occurred with the insertion of the V-Care manipulator and this was repaired. Both lacerations were closed with running locking sutures. One with 2-0 vicryl and other with 2-0 monocryl.
This was not a scheduled procedure and it was an unintentional/accidental complication that occurred during the scheduled surgery. Do I still code the laceration repair? Do I only code the TLH?
Thank you in advance
