Mats Fernström, the National Board of Health and Welfare, Sweden 2020-06-11 (Swe ID C844).
The Swedish Society for Vascular Surgery has developed a new and more appropriate classification for vascular surgery that will be in use in Sweden from January 1:st, 2021. See the attached Power-Point presentation (unfortunately only available in Swedish).
There are 1 119 new procedure codes. 993 of them have been mapped to existing codes by an experienced, senior vascular surgeon but 126 need a new code in NCSP+ for different reasons. All codes, including suggested grouping properties, are presented in the attached file New SWE codes for vascular surgery.xlsx. Technical changes are in the file TC_C844.xlsx.
Normally we report primary codes updates to NCC in connection with the completion of the PR version, but since this is such a big change we also want to report it here on the Forum. This makes it also possible for anyone to make the same changes if desired.

At present, Estonia will stay conservative in adopting new vascular surgery codes and will like to observe the development. I am not very sure, that your change from the main NOMESCO anatomic principal for codes is worth following. Discussion over this will be most welcome.

Ten outgoing procedure codes were missing in the files “TC_C844.xlsx” and “New SWE codes for vascular surgery.xlsx”. They are now added in the updated files.

I apologize for another update but it is necessary because I have not previously received full information from “Classifications” here at the National Board. In the previous files all outgoing surgical codes in chapter P were missing. They are now added in “New SWE codes for vascular surgery-Updated 2020-08-19.xlsx” and “TC_C844-Updated 2020-08-19.xlsx”.
To avoid misunderstanding you can delete all my and Ralph´s previous files, except the Powerpoint.

After the discussion at the meeting 2020-09-16 we have changed our TC slightly (see TC_C844-Updated 2020-09-24.xlsx). The only change from our previous TC (updated 2020-08-19) is that we want the four codes beginning with VSR to have PROCPR 05S15 instead of our original wish (05S18).
