History of Bladder Injury--Dx code?

    Default History of Bladder Injury--Dx code?
    Medical Coding Books
    During an open surgery the bladder was lacerated & repaired, and the abdominal incision was closed. Afterwards another physician performed a cystoscopy to evaluate the bladder. His reason was listed History of Bladder Injury. The only code I can find is V15.59--History of Injury other. Is there a more specific code for this? I would appreciate any help you can give. Thanks.

    That's the only code that I have been able to find as well....nothing more specific.

    Take care
