How would I code the following:
DX: Power saw injury, right hand, with amputation through ring DIP level and partial amputation of small finger through distal ulnar half of the distal phalanx and soft tissue.
1.Right ring finger completion of amputation and primary closure just proximal to the DIP level.
2.Completion of amputation of right small finger through the mid-distal phalanx level with primary closure.
