Hello, Hope you can help.
Patient had a lumbar lami done a week ago, went home then developed a CSF leak, with spinal headache. Had to go back to surgery to find and fix the leak. Would I use the 349.39 code for the CSF leak, or would it be a complication of surgery since it was delayed- 997.09; E878.8
