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.
