    division of adhesions diagnosis code??

  2. #2


    Adhesion is the diagnosis and the devision is the procedure bieng done to release it.- (ie)deviding the adhesion, which is otherwise called as adhesiolysis.. we do not have a diagnosis for the procedure of lysis or adhesiolysis. ( division and adhesion are contradictory term to each other.
    You have look for "Adhesion" as the diagnosis. Please go to the index and find our for adhesion of the particular body area of system.
    Hope this makes meaning.
