Thread: Rectocele with cystocele with complete uterine prolapse

    Default Rectocele with cystocele with complete uterine prolapse

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've been looking at 618 codes for a half hour, and I'm more confused than ever. I have to come up with ONE code that covers rectocele with cystocele with complete uterine prolapse.

    618.1 is uterine prolapse without mention of vaginal wall prolapse, which is fine -- but no mention of rectocele or cytocele. Then we have

    618.2 uterogenital prolapse, incomplete
    618.3 uterogenital prolapse, complete
    618.4 uterogenital prolapse, unspecified

    Medical dictionary look-up does not give me a definition of complete uterogenital prolapse that gets me off the hook.

    If anybody can point me in the right direction, I would be thankful.

    618.3 would be the more appropriate for this.

    Many thanks.
