What is the icd-9-cm code for a one-stage distal hypospadias repair with circumcision and a v-flap for meatal advancement?
The heart is SUPERIOR to the stomach...ABOVE... Distal usually only applies to the appendages, or limbs. The hand is distal to the elbow. The foot is distal to the ankle. Distal might give you partial credit for some answers but when you are dealing with the torso you will want to use SUPERIOR or INFERIOR.
