    Look at icd-9 658 section to see if any of those apply.

    The pts membranes ruptured at 26 weeks I do not know if /when she delivered b/c she was transfered OOT to high risk center. That is all that I have.

    If this is all you have I'm looking at dx 658.90 Unspecified Other problems associated w/ amniotic cavity and membranes; unspecified as to episode of care or not applicable.

    This is my thought.
