Description

«Reconstruction-total replacements» procedures
In Norway we have several procedures for total replacement in hip, shoulder and knee which is a reconstruction replacement, different from a “normal” total replacement sometimes including replacement of almost an entire limb. These procedure codes replaced procedures named: “Total exision of humerus/femur with implantation of a prosthesis” (NBR89 andNFR89) in tumor surgery in 2015. Some of these procedures are not in the right DRG group. This is a correction of properties for some of these procedures.
The reconstruction replacement procedures for the hip belong in the DRG group 209E or 209D (property 08S81). For revision of the hip the procedures will belong to DRG 209C (property 08S93).
Shoulder reconstruction replacement procedures belong to DRG 491 (property 08S60).
The reconstruction replacement procedures for the knee belong in the DRG group 209G (property 08S83). For revision of the hip the procedures will belong to DRG 209F (property 08S94).

A file With actual procedures will follow.

This is a mapping issue. The Norwegian codes are very specific and do not exist in other version of NCSP. Reading the text does not reveal that these are joint replacement interventions.
However, since this seems to be the case, the problem is solvend by changing the mapping.
Actually some of the codes already are mapped in the way that gives the properties neeeded.

The proposal was accepted. It affects only Norway. The technical changes are corrected. Please note, that the NCSP+ table shows the changes in the mappings with all related codes.

I have missed to update the technical changes for combined NordDRG Com. All changes are in the NCSP+ mapping.
