Description

  • NBSK69 Other shortening or lengthening osteotomy of shoulder or upper arm
  • NBSK89 Other traction lengthening of epiphyseal plate of shoulder or upper arm

The SWE gives these codes property 08S50 ‘Shoulder or humerus procedure’ whereas the other version given them property 08S53 ‘Humerus procedure’. Structurally the code indicates either shoulder or humerus, but it is difficult to imagine that anything else than the length of the humerus could be changed.

Technical change

Both codes (and all linked national codes) are given property 08S53 and 08S50 is removed.

DRG change

Minimal since other factors (other intervention codes and dx) usually give correct result.
