    Does anyone have a suggestion for an ICD 9 code for "postpolypectomy electrocoagulation syndrome"?

    Hey, I think if it's a belongs to the group of gastric surgery then 564.2. with symptoms stated below.

    OR 998.1* if they mentioned any complication in chart (If not then 998.89).

    Be'coz, Postpolypectomy electrocoagulation syndrome (also known as postpolypectomy syndrome and transmural burn syndrome) refers to the development of abdominal pain, fever, leukocytosis, and peritoneal inflammation in the absence of frank perforation that occurs after polypectomy with electrocoagulation.

    Hope this helps.
