Thread: Post hysterectomy laceration

  1. #1

    Default Post hysterectomy laceration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Six weeks post hysterectomy, patient presents to office with bleeding after intercourse and a 1" laceration had occurred in the vaginal cuff. The repair and suturing was done out-patient, using procedure code 57200. Having trouble finding an appropriate ICD-9 code and E code for this. Any suggestions?

    878.7- Open wound of genital organs ..... vagina complicated
    911.8 -other and unspecified superficial injury of trunk ( applicable to vagina) without mention of infection.
    V15.29- Other personal history presenting hazards to health
    E 878.6- Surgical operation and other procedures as the cause of ABNORMAL reaction of the patient; other specified surgical operations & procedures
    E928.9- other and unspecified environmental and accidental causes; accidentNOS /blow NOS- stated as accidentally inflicted.
    I hope most of them are applicable(Reportable), if not all.
    I think you can analyse with the exact OP note too, having these codes in mind.
