The diagnosis most commonly used here is 592.1 (ureteral stone)or 593.3 stricture-post op. Our physicians are called to the OR quite often to place stents to mark the ureters to avoid injury to them when surgery is being preformed by another physician (e.g. hysterectomy). In that case, I use the diagnosis of the surgery.
I hope this helps you!
