23/04/2019 N/A N/A Portal vein embolisation (as sole procedure) New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testImproves coding structure – currently as there is no specific code providers are using a range of other XR codes.
23/04/2019 N/A N/A Intracavernosal injection New Code Submitted Long standing procedure but no code. The injection is used to create an artificial erection to aid in the diagnosis of penile fibrosis and injury. Also used in the treatment setting for erectile dysfunction. Patients are taught how to self-inject. Specialists consider there should be a specific code for this and as there isn’t have been trying to use alternative codes such as S5300 Introduction of substance into skin N2782 Intralesional injection of pharmacologic agent into penis for Peyronie’s disease or W9040 Injection into joint cyst bursa .
23/04/2019 N/A N/A Coronary intravascular lithotripsy +/- angioplasty +/- insertion of stent New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/test

18/04/2019 B2993 Reconstruction of breast using stacked deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP) (including delayed reconstruction) - bilateral (2 flaps per breast) N/A Coding Principles Published
18/04/2019 N/A N/A Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using fixed prosthesis - - bilateral New Code Submitted This a a bilateral version of B3013
18/04/2019 B3013 Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using fixed prosthesis Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using fixed prosthesis - unilateral Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityTo identify this code as for use in unilateral surgery only.
18/04/2019 N/A N/A Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using expandable prosthesis - bilateral New Code Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityThis a a bilateral version of B3012
18/04/2019 B3012 Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using expandable prosthesis Mastectomy and immediate reconstruction of breast using expandable prosthesis - unilateral Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityTo identify this code as for use in unilateral surgery only.
16/04/2019 N/A N/A Myeloid Panel New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/test
16/04/2019 TBA N/A Convergent procedure and catheter ablation for persistent atrial fibrillation New Code Submitted Brand new procedure/testThis hybrid procedure is now being performed in small numbers but gives better results for people with long standing atrial fibrillation (AF)
15/04/2019 G2340 Transabdominal repair of diaphragmatic hernia Transabdominal repair of diaphragmatic hernia (excluding hiatus hernia) Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityWe need to update the narrative to make a clear distinction between codes G2330 & G2340. Whilst hiatus hernia can be described as a type of diaphragmatic hernia but there are others types – congenital and acquired which I think the code was intended for. By adding 'excluding hiatus hernia' we are clarifying which code the provider should select. https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=15942 https://www.msdmanuals.com/en-gb/home/digestive-disorders/esophageal-and-swallowing-disorders/hiatus-hernia We think a diaphragmatic hernia should be describing as either congenital diaphragmatic hernias (paediatrics) or acquired diaphragmatic hernias – generally caused by trauma (direct penetrating in cases of stab or gunshot or blunt trauma such as crush injuries or RTA) iatrogenic caused during surgery or very rarely caused by severe coughing/vomiting. The complexity of surgery is higher for a true diaphragmatic hernia than surgery to repair a hiatus hernia hence we need a clear distinction in which code to choose.
05/04/2019 S1510 Needle/tru-cut biopsy of muscle Needle/tru-cut biopsy of muscle (as sole procedure) Narrative Change Submitted Improves coding structure and adds clarityThis is often done in isolation as a diagnostic procedure. When done in combination with another procedure this would be a minor addition.
