    We have a OB pt.who presents at 39 weeks and 4 days gestation for attempted external cephalic version, the version was unsuccessful so we proceeded with a c-section,and the infant was in the frank breech presentation,is there a dx code for a failed version or do I use the 652.21?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!
