    Default Hx of tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy

    Our pediatricians would like to code for this. They had V45.9 that has been deleted. My reading shows this is a postprocedural code. That category has V45.89 Other postprocedural status. I also found V15.29 Personal history of surgery to other organs. Any thoughts on the appropriate code?

    V4579 - acquired absence of other organ.
