Would I code Z48.817 (aftercare following surgery for skin) then E11.62_ and L97._ _ _? Or no aftercare code? How would I rank the ulcer stage after graft?
"Z48.298 Encounter for aftercare following other organ transplant" is used after skin grafting.
After a graft is applied to a pressure ulcer, the stage is always considered "unstageable", but with diabetic/venous stasis ulcer I believe it is still the same level of severity until healed.
Where I found guidance
Thank you so much!
