|CCI component 2 codes - what was done|
|CCI 2 code:||74|
|CCI Collection Mode:||CCI collect each|
This procedure is a part of CCI Collection. This is one of the CCI component 2 codes - what was done.
- Refers to a procedure to stabilize or fix a body part.
- Internal fixation: A surgical procedure that stabilizes and joins the ends of fractured (broken) bones by mechanical devices such as metal plates, pins, rods, wires or screws. Internal fixation is as opposed to external fixation of a fracture by a splint or cast.
- External fixation: halo, casts, back slabs, walking casts, splints, and/or slings, e.g. back slab applied for broken metatarsal bones.
Collecting "CCI collect each" items
- "CCI collect each" items are entered each time they happen
- Px Date
- if an Acquired Procedure, enter the Px Date for each day that they happen
- if an Admit Procedure leave the date blank
- Px Count
- if they happen more than once on a day, enter the number of times for that day, otherwise enter a Px Count of 1
Px Date for patients who move
See Px Date#Moves=== Fusion vs Fixation ===
- The subtlety here is to distinguish it from Fusion of a body part which is also used to stabilize things -- so if the way the stabilization was done was by fusing 2 similar and adjacent body parts together (e.g. fusion of 2 or more spinal bones), then use Fusion instead of Fixation.
