Additional Info

  • Refers to efforts to drain or evacuate either abnormal fluid, clot, pus, etc. and eliminates the fluid from the body
    • forming a colostomy is not drainage because stool is not an abnormal fluid, code as Bypass)
  • The method of drainage can be anything: open surgical, percutaneous, etc.
  • Includes the following:
    • Pericardiocentesis and/or creation of a pericardial window
    • Abscess drainage -- or incision & drainage (I&D)
    • Drainage of a collection of blood or evacuation of a blood clot (e.g. in the head) --- but it does NOT include endarterectomy or thrombectomy -- see Extraction
    • Drainage of fluid -- e.g. from a joint
    • Paracentesis when done for therapeutic reasons (use Paracentesis (diagnostic) for diagnostic ones)
      • we are aware that this will not distinguish surgical from nonsurgical drainage procedures; this is one of the consequences of NOT including the next layer to CCI coding (i.e. "how" the thing was done)

See also Bypass for some similar things.
