The diagnosis Z4120 ‘Routine and ritual circumcision’ has had property OR=1 since the code refers to surgical interventions. Howe Routine and ritual circumcisionver, it is not defined that code could not be used at a check-up visit where no intervention is performed. Therefore it has been decided that an intervention codes must be registered to assign the case to the surgical DRG.

Technical change

Remove OR=1 from Z4120 in SWE.

DRG change

If no intervention is registered the cases will be assigned to conservative DRG’s.
