retained products of conception?

Susan Posted Wed 10th of February, 2016 13:49:07 PM

What dx would I use for retained products after a d&c for missed ab?

If the patient has retained products of conception after a surgically induced abortion (which would be the 635 code) you would report 635.11 for the retained products. If, however, the patient has retained products of conception following the surgical removal of a missed abortion, you would now code it as an incomplete abortion since not all of the products had been removed, and your return to the OR to remove the products (59812-78) would be coded as 634.11.

In ICD-10 you need to code O04.6 or O03.0-

Thanks
