A 38-year-old patient with an ectopic cornual pregnancy underwent surgery. The patient had laparoscopic removal of the ectopic pregnancy, from the right fallopian tube, which extended into the right cornu. A consulting provider excised a portion of the right fallopian tube and placed the ectopic pregnancy in an Endo Catch™ bag. What is/are the appropriate body part value(s) and approach value(s) for the removal of the ectopic cornual pregnancy?
Assign the following ICD-10-PCS codes:
10T24ZZ Resection of products of conception, ectopic, percutaneous endoscopic approach, for the laparoscopic removal of the ectopic pregnancy.
The removal of the ectopic pregnancy in this case involved a single excision comprising the proximal portion of the fallopian tube, where the fallopian tube traverses the uterine wall. The excision of some myometrium is an inevitable part of removing the ectopic pregnancy, as well as the excision of a small portion of the right fallopian tube where the ectopic was lodged. These excisions did not have a unique objective and would not be coded separately.
