A patient being scheduled for surgery I believe would describe the MDM or Table C (Table of Risk):
Management options for a Low Level states - "-Minor surgery with no identified risk factors" ; Moderate Level states "Minor surgery with identified risk factors -Elective major surgery (open, percutaneous or endos and for a High Level states "Elective major surgery (open, percutaneous or endoscopic) with identified risk factors -Emergency major surgery (open, percutaneous or endoscopic)"
It has always been my understanding an additional work-up reflected additional tests needed to confirm a disease process or identify a specific diagnosis, i.e. lab work, radiology, CT, etc.
Hope this helps~
