    Exclamation History of Perineal Laceration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our doctors did anesthesia on a patient who had a history of fourth degree laceration. We are trying to figure out what would be the proper ICD-9 code to use. It was orginally billed with V23.4. I was looking at 664.31 but we weren't too sure whether that would work

    Default I would check on the OBGYN forum, but

    if the laceration is not currently being treated, I would not report this w/ the current code.
