    Default Status post sub-total gastrectomy

    AAPC: Back to School
    This patient has gastric remnant of about 15cm after excision of stomach. Can V45375 be coded or does the entire stomach need to be absent before this code can be used? Thanks.

    Default sub-total gastrectomy

    V45.75 is for acquired/partial/postoperative. That's what I get. So, if it's just partial or if it's complete. Same code.
