Additional Info

  • When a drainage (e.g. abscess) procedure is done and a temporary drain is left in place, only code the drainage procedure, i.e. do not use this code for that.
    • More generally, use this code for devices that are entirely internal, or have both an internal and external part but are meant to be permanent. BUT there are exceptions to this, for example DO code a temporary pacemaker (which has its own code, as below).
  • Excludes:


  • Use this code for devices for which any part in the body. Contrary to what Allan said before, it does NOT have to be entirely in the body.
  • Code this for such devices for which there is not a picklist option.

Removals are not coded

  • We do not code the removal or subsequent management of devices, only their insertion/implantation.
