Hi
Kindly provide more details like the pre operative diagnosis, post operative diagnosis and the procedure performed on the DOS. This will help us to understand what all procedures were performed and what was the need for creation of ASD.

Thanks!

There is no code for creation of atrial septal defect. It is considered part of the major procedure (33621).
