59840 is the most appropriate code . The reason is: it is an induced (abortion ) procedure by Dilation and Curettage where in curettage is mandatory. Every Blighted Ovum treatment with suction and dilation will not be complete unless curettage is done. So after dilation and suction suction, it is completed by cerettage for sure.
This code fits for Corneous mole, and for induced abortion otherwise not classified elsewhere also.
The code 59841 holds good for induced abortion with dilation and evacuation only.
