Thread: Dilation of Stoma Stricture

  1. #1

    Default Dilation of Stoma Stricture

    AAPC: Back to School
    I don't usually code urological procedures but I have a procedure note and I am stumped.

    The patient has an access port created by bringing the appendix to the umbilicus. He dilates this area and empties daily with a catheter. Recently he noticed bleeding and difficulty dilating and presented for dilation of stricture of access port. The physician dilated the stricture by passage of sound and used a #20 French sound was used.

    Any Urology Supercoders out there???

    Unlisted intestine would be a good choice.
