Additional Info

  • This code is a wastebasket for iatrogenic mechanical complication due to a type of device or implant or graft for which there aren't other, more specific codes (see below).
  • It includes the following types of problems:
    • Breakdown (mechanical)
    • Displacement
    • Leakage
    • Malposition
    • Obstruction, mechanical
    • Perforation
    • Protrusion
  • Also code the specific type/site of injury, if possible.

At our last TASK meeting the decision was made to exclude spontaneous rupture of an ETT cuff or cuff leak, but we are wondering if this is correct based on what is listed in the includes section of this page and what is in Iatrogenic, mechanical complication/dysfunction, internal orthopedic prosthetic device or implant or graft or bone device and Iatrogenic, mechanical complication/dysfunction, cardiac or vascular prosthetic device or implant or graft, NOS Lisa Kaita 12:37, 2024 March 20 (CDT)
