    Exclamation Fetal Demise Due to Maternal Trauma
    Exam Training Packages
    Hello. Can someone help with this? Im trying to code a fetal demise post maternal trauma. Fetal US x2 does not show any injury to the fetus or any abruption.The mother however suffered a lumbar fracture from a motor vehicle accident. She had been hospitalized for more than 24 hours before unexpected fetal demise. Is it ok to use 656.43 ?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    as the documentation is not clear, you may try 674.80
