CPK ID 322


Someone being operated for a D34.9 Benign neoplasm of thyroid gland and at the same time have a D17.2 Benign lipomatous neoplasm removed will be grouped to DRG 288B Other procedure for obesity. Surgical procedures involved in this case BAA40 Unilateral lobectomy of thyroid gland, QCE10 Excision of lesion of skin of upper limb.


Technical explanation: Both surgery procedures belong to the same MDC where the surgery for benign lipomatous neoplasm are ahead in hierarchy.
One solution is to change the hierarchy after weight and then the problem will disappear, or another solution that is easier is to remove procedure property 10S04 from QCE10 and similar surgical procedures.


Remove the procedure property 10S04 from QAE10, QBE10, QCE10 and QDE10.
