The procedure ABSD40 and all national codes mapped to it have the property 01S02 ‘Spinal procedure’ except in NOR where the code has property 01S51 ‘Insertion or replacement of nervous system central stimulation device’
Both could be correct, the effect on grouping is minimal.
Since the number of changes is least when NOR is changed to the COM model I propose that.
- 01S02 PROCPR ABSD40 Implantation of spinal injection device
- 01S51 PROCPR ABSD40 Implantation of spinal injection device

Analysis on resource use indicated both in SWE and FIN data that 01S51 results in DRG assignment that corresponds better to resource use.
ABSD40 ‘Implantation of spinal injection device’ and all linked codes shall have PROCPROP 01S51 instead of 01S02
Cases with ABSD40 and MDC 01 will be assigned to DRG 570O/570X (A20O/A20N) ‘Insertion or replacement of nervous system central stimulation device’ instead of DRG 004O/004 (A25O/A25N) ‘Spinal procedures’
