post procedural fistula's

Would it be correct to use T81.83XA for a patient who is being treated for post procedural fistula's? Our focus is TPN due to colocutaneous fistula causing severe protein calorie malnutrition.


  • It would be the correct code, but make sure you have supporting documentation in the medical record that the fistula arose as a result of the procedure performed- whether it scanned into the EMR or documentation from RN that this was confirmed with MD.
