Cervical conization Intervention ICD-9-CM 67.2
Cervical conization (CPT codes 57520(Cold Knife) and 57522(Loop Excision)) refers to a biopsy of the cervix in which a cone-shaped sample of tissue is removed from the mucous membrane. Conization may be used either for diagnostic purposes, or for therapeutic purposes to remove pre-cancerous cells.
- cold knife conization (CKC). Usually outpatient.
- loop electrical excision procedure (LEEP). Usually outpatient, occasionally inpatient.
Conization of the cervix is a common treatment for dysplasia following abnormal results from a pap smear.
Side effects of the treatment may include cervical stenosis with a resulting severe endometriosis. This procedure may increase the risk of incompetent cervix.
