Educational Corner:
Are you coding correctly?
Visceral and Parietal Pleural Invasion
*** Must have tissue from resection to code this item***
Physician statement of Visceral and Parietal Pleural Invasion can be used to code this data item when no other information is available.
Code 0 for in situ (behavior/2) tumors.
A surgical resection must be done to determine if the visceral and/or parietal pleural are involved.
Do not use imaging findings to code this data item.
Code 9 when…
*A FNA only is performed – FNA is not adequate to assess pleural layer invasion.
*Surgical resection of the primary site is performed and there is no mention of visceral and/or parietal pleural invasion.
