It is obvious that the procedure NAM29 'Suture of fascia of spine or neck' does not fit in DRG C56 (187) 'Dental extraction or restoration'. We suggest that the procpro 03S13 'Dental extraction or restoration' is removed from NAM29. Since NAM29 has the procpro 08S12 'Soft tissue procedure' the procedure will be directed to DRG H44 (226/227) 'Soft tissue operations'

In Finland, there is no respective code in use (couldn't find one through NCSP+ mapping either). However, from clinical point of view that corrections seems logic.

This is an obvious error that msut be correted as proposed. The code NASM29 exist in all national procedure classificitions except Finnish.
