    Default hydronephrosis

    ICD-9-CM Medical Diagnosis Code:
    Code: 591
    Descr: Hydronephrosis, Hydrocalycosis, Hydronephrosis, Hydroureteronephrosis

    REMEMBER: You'll need to check re: "with obstruction" in ICD-9 for specificity.

    UPJ obstruction depending on if it's congenital or aquired could be 753.21 or 593.3.
    If the ureter stent is placed using a cystoscope, look to 52332.
