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.



  • Drains that are left in (The first insertion and drainage should be captured) and emptied periodically:
    • Peritoneal drain for ascites
    • pericardial drain
    • EVD
    • Pleurex
    • Nephrostomy tubes
  • therapeutic lavage (abdominal washout) see List of CCI procedures we don't code

      • 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.
