The root operation “Transplantation” has been added to the body system Male Reproductive System, for the body parts scrotum and penis. This will allow the capture of transplants of these organs. This change results in a new table 0VY as noted below.

A patient with an acquired loss of his penis and scrotum due to a war injury, presented for penile and scrotal transplantation. Previous penile and abdominal skin grafts were removed. The allogeneic donor penile and scrotal graft including vascular pedicles were harvested. A catheter was placed through the donor penis, the recipient stump and continued into the recipient’s bladder. Using sutures, the donor and recipient’s urethral mucosa and corpora spongiosum tissue were approximated. Next, both corpora cavernosa tissues were aligned and fixed with sutures. Following fixation of the penis, microvascular anastomoses of the vascular pedicles and dorsal penile nerves from donor to recipient were performed. Moving to the perineum, the donor scrotal skin was sutured into the subdermis and skin. What codes are assigned for this penile and scrotal transplantation procedure?
