Excision Guidelines

  • Excision and resection refer to work done on an internal body part. If it's an external body part consider instead use of Amputation.
  • If any amount of reconstruction was done as part of a resection, code only Excision with Reconstruction, Replacement
  • Otherwise the distinction is whether the extent of the excision, usually indicated in the operative note written by the surgeon:
    • Excision, Resection, partial indicates that only part of the body part was removed -- e.g. partial thyroidectomy
    • Excision, Resection, total indicates ALL of the body part was removed -- e.g. total gastrectomy
    • Excision, Resection, radical indicates that not only was all of the body part removed, but adjacent structures such as lymph nodes, adjacent soft tissue structures were also removed.
      • Examples: radical neck dissection, radical mastectomy.

Collecting "CCI collect each" items

  • "CCI collect each" items are entered each time they happen
  • If they happen more than once on a day, enter the number of times as Px Count for that day, otherwise enter a Px Count of 1
