Discontinued Surgery

  1. Question Discontinued Surgery
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone have any good giudelines on coding discontinued surgeries?

    We are having troubles wtih 2 procedures planned one completed and one was started but aborted. We are looking for something that explains if it is ok to code with a 74 on the aborted and then how to report the V64.X codes in ICD-9 for canceled procedure.

    Of course this is just one example. So some general guidelines would be great.
