YOUR OP NOTE SAYS THAT IT WAS" HYSTERCTOMY".
Point 1) it is most unlikely to go for "Supracervical" (leaving the cervix) and then going for a removal of a cuff of vagina (partial vaginectomy) along with hysterectomy for a cancer case (be it the same organ or adjacent organ). When there is a necessity for removal of uterus and partial vaginectomy, then there would have been a necessity for cervical removal (which is in between the two) too.
Point2) if not mentioned otherwise as Supra cervical/ radical, Hysterectomy goes for total Hysterctomy.
There had been removal of pelvic lymph nodes and the paraaortic lymph node removal there.
So as to me from the whole scenario, it goes more in favor of 58200.
As far as the Gyn procedure, this code 58200 alone suffice to describe the procedure, (apart from the uroprocedures). In that case there is no need for reporting partial vaginectomy separately
However, please clarify with your Surgeon whether it was Supra or radical or total once again, because it really matters for coding accuracy.
