Description

Problem
Procedure code NCL19 sutur eller rekonstruksjon av muskel i albue eller underarm have the following properties in the Norwegian version.

OR=1
PROCPR 03S01 Major head or neck procedure
PROCPR 08S12 Soft tissue procedure
PROCPR 09S07 Other skin, subcutaneous tissue or breast procedure
PROCPR 21S09 Other OR procedure for injuries
PROCPR 99S90 Extensive procedure - list created during exporting process

We think that PROCPR 03S01 Major head or neck procedure is obviously wrong. We therefore want to remove this property from the code.

Analysis
The Norwegian data do not have cases with this code in combination with diagnosis from MDC 03.
This is a matter of medical description/ error correction, so further analysis seems not to be necessary.

Suggestion
PROCPR 03S01 Major head or neck procedure shall be removed from procedure code NCL19.

Technical change
PROCPR 03S01 will be set to OUT in the proc1 sheet for the code NCL19.
