Root Ops; Med & Surg

ICD-10-PCS; Medical & Surgical Root Operations; Values

TermDefinition
Alteration (Medical and Surgical) Modifying the natural anatomical structure of a body part without affecting the function of the body part (value 0); (e.g. Face-lift, breast augmentation)
Bypass (Medical and Surgical) Altering the route of passage of the contents of a tubular body part (value of 1); (e.g Coronary artery bypass, colostomy formation)
Change (Medical and Surgical) Taking out or taking off a device from a body part and putting back an identical or similar device in or on the same body part without cutting or puncturing the skin or mucus membrane (value of 2); (e.g. Urninary catheter change, gastrostomy tube change)
Control (Medical and Surgical) Stopping or attempting to stop postprocedural or other acute bleeding (value of 3); (e.g. Control of post-prostatectomy hemorrhage, control of intracranial subdural hemorrhage)
Creation (Medical and Surgical) Putting in or on biological / synthetic material to form a new body part that to the extent possible replicates the anatomic structure or function of an absent body part (value of 4) (e.g. Corrective procedures in individual w/ congenital anomalies)
Destruction (Medical and Surgical) Physical eradication of all or part of a body part by the direct use of energy, force, or a destructive agent (value of 5);(e.g. Fulguration of rectal polyp, cautery of skin lesion)
Dilation (Medical and Surgical) Expanding an orifice or the lumen of a tubular body part(value of 7); (e.g. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, phyloromyotomy)
Division (Medical and Surgical) Cutting into a body part, without draining fluids and/or gases from the body part, in order to separate or transect a body part( value of 8); e.g. Spinal cordotomy, osteotomy)
Drainage (Medical and Surgical) Taking or letting out fluids and/or gases from a body part (value of 9); (e.g. Thoracentesis, incision and drainage)
Excision (Medical and Surgical) Cutting out or off, without replacement, a portion of a body part (value of B); (e.g. Partial nephrectomy, liver biopsy)
Extirpation (Medical and Surgical) Taking or cutting out solid matter from the body (value of C); (e.g. Thrombectomy, choledocholithotomy)
Extraction (Medical and Surgical) Pulling or stripping out or off all or a portion of a body part by the use of force (value of D); (e.g. Dilation and curettage, vein stripping)
Fragmentation (Medical and Surgical) Breaking solid matter in a body part into pieces (value of F); (e.g. Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, transurethral lithotripsy)
Fusion (Medical and Surgical) Joining together portions of an articular body part, rendering the articular body part immoblie (value of G) ; (e.g. Spinal fusion, ankle arthrodesis)
Insertion (Medical and Surgical) Putting in a nonbiological appliance that monitors, assists, performs, or prevents a physiological function but does not physically take the place of a body part (value of H); (e.g. Insertion of radioactive implant, insertion of central venous catheter)
Inspection (Medical and Surgical) Visually and/or manually exploring a body part (value of J) ; (e.g. Diagnostic arthroscopy, exploratory laparotomy)
Map (Medical and Surgical) Locating the route of passage of electrical impulses and/or locating functional areas in a body part (value of K); (e.g. Cardiac mapping, cortical mapping)
Occlusion (Medical and Surgical) Completely closing an orifice or lumen of a tubular body part (value of L) ; (e.g. Fallopian tube ligation, ligation of inferior vena cava)
Reattachment (Medical and Surgical) Putting back in or on all or a portion of a separated body part to its normal location or other suitable location (value of M) ; (e.g. Reattachment of hand, reattachment of avulsed kidney)
Release (Medical and Surgical) Freeing a body part from a abnormal physical constraint by cutting or by use of force (value of N) ; (e.g. Adhesiolysis, carpal tunnel release)
Removal (Medical and Surgical) Taking out or off a device from a body part (value of P) ; (e.g. Drainage tube removal, cardiac pacemaker removal)
Repair (Medical and Surgical) Restoring, to the extent possible, a body part to its normal anatomic structure and function (value of Q) ; (e.g. Colostomy takedown, herniorrhaphy, suture of laceration)
Replacement (Medical and Surgical) Putting in or on a biological or synthetic material that physically takes the place and/or function of all or a portion of a body part (value of R); (e.g. Total hip replacement, bone graft, free skin graft)
Reposition (Medical and Surgical) Moving to its normal location, or other suitable location, all or a portion of a body part (value of S) ; (e.g. Reposition of undescended testicle fracture reduction)
Resection (Medical and Surgical) Cutting out or off, without replacement, all of a body part (value of T); (e.g. Total nephrectomy, total lobectomy of lung)
Restriction (Medical and Surgical) Partially closing an orifice or the lumen of a tubular body part (value of V) ; (e.g. Esophaogogastric fundoplication, cervical cerclage)
Revision (Medical and Surgical) Correcting, to the extent possible, a portion of a malfunctioning device or the position of a displaced device (value of W) ; (e.g. Adjustment of position of pacemaker lead, recementing of hip prosthesis)
Supplement (Medical and Surgical) Putting in or on biological or synthetic material that physically reinforces and/or augments the function of a portion of a body part (value of U) ; (e.g. Herniorrhaphy using mesh, free nerve graft, mitral valve ring annuloplasty)
Transfer (Medical and Surgical) 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 (value of X) ; (e.g. Tendon transfer, skin pedicle flap transfer)
Transplantation (Medical and Surgical) Putting in or on all of 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 (value of Y); (e.g. Kidney transplant, heart transplant)
