Problem
A Swedish NordDRG user reported a case with cholecystectomy combined with some other procedures, among them JKB40 (JKSB40 ‘Suture of bile duct’), that was grouped to DRG G06 ‘Gallvägsoperationer utom kolecystektomi’ (former DRG 193/194 ‘Biliary tract proc except only cholecys w or w/o c. d. e.’). The user thought it was wrong since there in fact had been a cholecystectomy. Thus we noticed that the Swedish DRG text is a mistranslation. We had missed the word “only” and the text in SWE 2016 will be changed to “Gallvägsoperationer utom enbart kolecystektomi”. The complete texts and short texts for the subgroups to DRG G06 are specified in the enclosed Decision_C448.xls.
Although a Swedish problem, we want to report it since there may be mistranslations also in other versions, at least in the Norwegian.
