Board 2010-04-09 - Recommendation accepted

BACKGROUND

O94 has been used for women in all ages, where the problems are caused by complications after childbirth (even long time after pregnancy). One example is treatment of anal insufficiency.

Proposal

We wish to discuss the correct coding for treatment of obstretrical complications in late age by using anal insufficiency as a case. Is it correct to use O94?

CHANGES

Technical change

The diagnosis category of dx O94 is changed from MDC 14 to 23M99.
