Patient had an excision of pilonidal cyst (11772) done on 9/17/15. Now 2 weeks postop evaluation patient wound has dehiscence , there is exudate material present. Patient will have to go back to surgery room for wound debridement.
What would be the best ICD10 to use?

You should report this repair using 13160 (Secondary closure of surgical wound or dehiscence,extensive or complicated) with ICD-10 code T81.31XA.
