Thread: DX code for Bladder Prolapse

  1. #1

    Default DX code for Bladder Prolapse

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have looked up the codes for this, but the codes don't seem to really describe this condition. 618.01 is for the vaginal walls, not the bladder. 756.71 is for a disorder of the abdominal walls. Is one of these codes correct for urinarry bladder prolapse?

    Default bladder prolapse

    For female, I get 618.01 (cystocele, midline) or 618.02 (cystocele, lateral) depending on whether the defect is lateral or medial. For male, I get 596.8 disorder of bladder. I started with prolapse and then went to bladder. If it's congenital look at 756.71 male or female.
