It is post treatement. It was a failed treatment option performed out of country.
Without any further specification "failed treatment" can imply ANY one of these

1 COMPLETION WO complication(Transplant performed)-COULD NOT OBTAIN THE DESIRED RESULT --- maturation arrest -----Status ASCT V CODE
2 Transplant PX performed W COMPLICATION- 996.89 Transplant/unspecified complication (PS: Notes FAIULRE OR REJECTION) + status code ("If bone marrow"-996.85)
3 "DURING" ASCT surgery--

Considering failed tx to "1" (As complete report is NOT available)
completion of Transplant WO complication with unable to obtain desired results-CELL maturation ARREST.

We can assign ANY of the following indicated V code status for the said scenario

We've ONLY 2 available specific V codes for H/O Adult SC (POSTNATAL ) out of the different types of (Postnatal) Adult SC.

  1. V42.82-PBSCs or HSC Peripheral stem cells ( Hematopoietic stem cells (blood-forming cells)
  2. V42.81-Bone marrow
  3. V42.89 Other specified
  4. V42.9 Unspecified
Need to verify the report for the specificity; If just h/o ASCT without ANY specifications, I'll assign V42.9 in this scenario.


Thanks
