    Per ope noted, a 1" long neck ployp was clipped with metal clip and removed w/snare .
    Snare is 45385....how about this metal clip??

    In addtion. this is a different ope note; EGD found over 50
    pieces small polyps in the stomach....2111 or any other
    more appropirate ICD-9?

    What is the purpose of the clip? I've seen endoclips placed to stop post-polypectomy bleeding, but this is not coded separately.

    ICD9 code needs to be based on the path report. What does the path state?
