A 69-year-old female, who had previously undergone placement of deep brain stimulation hardware, is admitted for removal of the hardware and complex closure of the wound. After removal of the hardware, all unhealthy portions of the wound were debrided. Prior to closure of the superficial layers, a pericranial flap, consisting of myofascial layers, was raised from surrounding healthy-appearing pericranium and was transposed to an area directly under the superficial layers to provide vascularized tissue under that area of the wound. A complex closure of the wound was performed mobilizing the adjacent scalp in order to create a tension-free closure in the area of the missing scalp. What is the correct body part value for closure of scalp wound using a pericranial flap?
The pericranial flap consisted of the myofascial layers of the scalp, and the equivalent body part in ICD-10-PCS is “Skin, subcutaneous tissue and fascia.” Assign the following ICD-10-PCS code:
0JX00ZC Transfer scalp subcutaneous tissue and fascia with skin, subcutaneous tissue and fascia, open approach
