Inpatient ICD-10-PCS question - Episiotomy

I have a ICD-10-PCS inpatient coding question.  Need appropriate n an inpatient case:  Small midline episiotomy extended to 2nd degree lac - repaired with 3-0 vicryl rapide.  Would we code the episiotomy and repair or just the repair?


  • According to Coding Clinic 4Q 2008, pg. 192 you would code both the episiotomy and the repair. This is advice from ICD-9, however, we can use ICD-9 advice in ICD-10, unless otherwise specified.
