    Can anyone help me find a diagnosis code for "stomal stenosis" I cant seem to find one. Thanks...

    stomal might refer to 'mouth' or 'opening' and stenosis refers to 'narrowing' might have to do with some kind of problem inserting the tube?

    It's sounds to me like there was a complication...without seeing the ope report...try the 569.xx series like 569.62...

    Try stricture - stoma following esophagostomy 530.87 or gastrostomy 537.89.


  5. Default Stenosis of ostomy
    The correct code would be 569.62
