Several DRG names ( 494,493, 494O) in Estonian version are not in clinical correlation with the NCSP codes used in grouping. So we have had suggetion from clinicians to correct the names as listed in the attached files. New names will reveal better the actual surgical procedures that are grouped in these DRG-s.

This issue is related to case #430. Back then the names of some national versions were corrected. The English names were not.
The names currently used in NDMS are in appendix 1.
We may think of changing also the English names so that it would correspond better to the content of DRGs 494, 493 and 494O.
The names could be e.g as follows:
493 - Endoscopic or laparoscopic operation on gallblader with CC
494 - Endoscopic or laparoscopic operation on gallblader w/o CC
494O - Endoscopic or laparoscopic operation on gallblader, short therapy.

Any comments on suggested set of names for DRGs 494, 493, 494O are welcome.
