Seems like I was told or "heard" some time ago that we can NOT code the size of a lesion from a path report ?

This is ASC related - I need to know for sure and have some proof if the answer is really yes ?

Also - Can someone tell me how to recognize the difference between an intermediate and complex closure - his notes are sooo simple - but he codes everything "complex" My QA'er is telling me they are intermediate ...

He says " pts defect was then undermined to remove tension. The skin was approximated using 4-0 PDS ininterrupted inverted fashion to approximate the dermis and 5-0 nylon in interrupted fashion to approximate the epidermis."

Thank you in advance
