Thanks for the response....the patient was male (perineal mass) and the
final dx was clear cell hidradenoma, negative for tumor

For the excision of the perineal mass, it will be according to male or female. If male code with 1142x codes. For female look at 5640x thru 56740 codes. If the dx does not match or procedure does not match then you would also use the 1142x codes.

Lisa - For permanent IV access I use 459.89 as primary and the underlying reason why they need it as secondry. Removal of Picc line I agree with V58.61. For excision of perineal mass - is it male or female? and what was the post op dx?

how about V58.81 for the removal of picc line
