Dang! 997.5 was my first thought, too! I decided against it because I wasn't sure of the extent of damage, and that code seemed to describe something pretty severe.No 867.0 is NOT the correct code for this scenario. That is a code for injury due to trauma. This is a post op complication and therefore the 997.5 is the correct code, also you need the E code for the complication this will be determined by wheter the complication occured during surgery or if the patient developed the complication during the post op time frame. If it occurs during surgery then you apply the E code for misadventure during surgery, if durning post op then use the E code for no mention of misadventure.
Again you need to read all the information presented in the code book for a section or subsection of codes. Follow the 867 code back all the way until you get to its main sub section and you will see that it specifies a trauma related injury.
