The cutting off all or part of the upper or lower extremities.
The physical eradication of all or a portion of a body part by the direct use of energy, force, or a destructive agent.
The pulling or stripping out or off all or a portion of a body part by the use of FORCE.
Taking or cutting out solid matter from a body part.
Taking or letting out fluids and/or gases from a body part. Note - the qualifier Diagnostic is used to identify drainage procedures that are biopsies.
Breaking solid matter in a body part into pieces.
The cutting into a body part without draining fluids and/or gases from the body part in order to separate or transect a body part.
Freeing a body part from an abnormal physical constraint by cutting or by use of force.
The putting in or on all or a portion of a living body part taken from another individual or animal to physically take the place and/or function of all or a portion of a similar body part.
The putting back in or on all or a portion of a separated body part to its normal location or other suitable location. Note - the body part doesn't have to function.
Moving, without taking out, all or a portion of a body part to another location to take over the function of all or a portion of a body part. Note - free grafts are NOT transfers (see Replacement) because they are removed from the vascular bed. In transfers, the graft stays attached to the vascular bed and is moved over.
Note - the body system value describes the deepest tissue layer in the flap and the qualifier can indicate the other tissue layers, if any, being transferred.
Moving to its normal location or other suitable location all or a portion of a body part. (Fracture reduction) Note - the body part is moved to a new location from an abnormal location, or from a normal location where it is not functioning correctly. Note - the body part may or may not be cut out or off to be moved to the new location. Note - The application of a cast or splint in conjunction with the Reposition procedure is NOT coded separately.
Partially closing an orifice or the lumen of a tubular body part. Note - the orifice can be a natural or an an artificially created orifice. Note - When the objective of the procedure is to NARROW the diameter of a tubular body part or orifice, it is coded to Restriction. Note - includes intraluminal and extraluminal methods.
