skin pocket revison

  1. Red face skin pocket revison
    Medical Coding Books
    What code would you use to do a skin pocket revision when the ICD9 reason is Radiation field is to close to the Aicd and the pocket needs to be moved?
    Any ideas from anyone? thanks in Advance

  2. Default Revision of Pocket
    Look at 33223; Revision of skin pocket for single or dual chamber pacing cardioverter-defibrillator. You may need a modifer depending on the situation or other factors so check that as well.

    Hope this helps.

    What dx code are you using for this? I just had a similar case come up this week, and not sure how to code ICD9.
