    Is there a code for manual reduction of prolapsed rectum under sedation?

    I was looking at that but did not know if I could use it because coder's desk reference states that it is an incarcerated rectal prolapse but the doctor did not mention anything about it being incarcerated. Do you think that I could still use this code, everything else fits?

    yes I would use it. The dx crosscoder only connects to 569.1 for rectal prolapse.
