A laparotomy is a surgical incision (cut) into the abdominal cavity. This operation is performed to examine the abdominal organs and aid diagnosis of any problems, including abdominal pain. In many cases, the problem – once identified – can be fixed during the laparotomy. In other cases, a second operation is required.
Answer: Although this was a reopening of a recent laparotomy, lysis of adhesions was the primary procedure performed and would be the only code billable. Coding rules would follow the same guidelines for 49002 just as they do for an exploratory laparotomy 49000.
Exploratory laparotomy is done while you are under general anesthesia. This means you are asleep and feel no pain. The surgeon makes a cut into the abdomen and examines the abdominal organs. The size and location of the surgical cut depend on the specific health concern.

Coding of vaginal deliveries requires a minimum of 3 codes; a principal diagnosis code, an outcome of delivery code and a weeks of gestation code. Fortunately, there are guidelines and notes to provide direction in properly assigning these codes.
The notes at the beginning of Chapter 15 Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Puerperium indicate that in addition to the Chapter 15 codes, the coder should assign a code from category Z3A, Weeks of gestation, to identify the specific week of the pregnancy, if known. The guidelines provide further direction, ...
It is appropriate to assign an outcome of delivery code for admissions when elective termination of pregnancy results in a liveborn fetus ( ICD-10-CM Coding Guideline I.C.15.q) and code Z37.0 Single live birth , is the only outcome of delivery code for use with O80 (ICD-10-CM Coding Guideline I.C.15.n.3).
Code O80 Encounter for full term uncomplicated delivery is assigned as the principal diagnosis for delivery admissions that meet the following criteria (ICD-10-CM Coding Guideline I.C.15.n):
An assisted vaginal delivery is one that is accomplished with the assistance of instrumentation such as forceps or vacuum extraction. Just like a spontaneous delivery, this procedure is reported with a code from the Obstetrics section of ICD-10-PCS because it is a procedure performed on the fetus, which is considered a product of conception (see ICD-10-PCS coding guideline C1).
As with the code for spontaneous vaginal delivery, the ICD-10-PCS code for episiotomies will be the same every time, 0W8NXZZ. Looking at the table below you can see that there is only one option for the value for each character in the code.
For delivery admissions, the principal diagnosis is the condition that prompted the admission. If multiple conditions prompted the admission, the condition most related to the delivery is the principal diagnosis (ICD-10-CM Coding Guideline I.C.15.b.4).
