Incarcerate umbilical hernia dx code

Vicky Posted Mon 28th of February, 2011 14:37:14 PM

Is 552.29 correct code for incarcerated umbilical hernia? Also doctor notes that hernia contained incarcerated omentum only. Would I still code as incarcerated?

I would code 552.8 if you really doubt of being not incarcerated. what you say ?
