Thread: Redundant Colon

    Default Redundant Colon

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've downloaded information from Mayo Clinic Digestive Specialist that states that redundant colon is "a normal anatomic variation usually causing no symptoms and needs no treatment". Whenever I see "Redundant but normal appearing colon" on my op reports I only use pre-op DX for coding purposes, because this is a normal anatomic variation that is not causing any problems. Anyone have a different take on how this should be coded? Thanks.
