    Without any further specification "failed treatment" can imply ANY one of these

    1 COMPLETION WO complication(Transplant performed)-COULD NOT OBTAIN THE DESIRED RESULT --- maturation arrest -----Status ASCT V CODE
    2 Transplant PX performed W COMPLICATION- 996.89 Transplant/unspecified complication (PS: Notes FAIULRE OR REJECTION) + status code ("If bone marrow"-996.85)
    3 "DURING" ASCT surgery--

    Considering failed tx to "1" (As complete report is NOT available)
    completion of Transplant WO complication with unable to obtain desired results-CELL maturation ARREST.

    We can assign ANY of the following indicated V code status for the said scenario

    We've ONLY 2 available specific V codes for H/O Adult SC (POSTNATAL ) out of the different types of (Postnatal) Adult SC.

    1. V42.82-PBSCs or HSC Peripheral stem cells ( Hematopoietic stem cells (blood-forming cells)
    2. V42.81-Bone marrow
    3. V42.89 Other specified
    4. V42.9 Unspecified

    Need to verify the report for the specificity; If just h/o ASCT without ANY specifications, I'll assign V42.9 in this scenario.


    Thanks
