As mentioned Z98.5 is used as History/Status Post of Tubal Ligation.Tubal ligation or tubectomy (also known as having one's "tubes tied" (ligation)) is a surgical procedure for sterilization in which a woman's fallopian tubes are clamped and blocked, or severed and sealed, either method of which prevents eggs from reaching the uterus for implantation. The ICD code describes Sterlization status.
