Hello all,

I am not sure how to code this path report and need some help.

1) Abdominal wall debridement: Inflamed granulation tissue and underlying dense fibrosis with hemosiderin deposition and fat necrosis; no malignancy seen. ICD 9 code? I found 701.5 for the granulation tissue...is this correct???

2) Peritoneum excision: Superficially ulcerated and inflamed dense fibroadipose tissue and underlying skeletal muscle with mild perivascular acute inflammation; no malignancy seen. ICD 9 code?

Thanks for your help!
