Guide for use:Help on this term

Each surgical treatment procedure used in the initial treatment of the cancer should be recorded. Surgical procedures performed for palliative purposes only should not be included.

For surgical procedures involved in the administration of another modality (eg., implantation of infusion pump, isolated limb parfusion/infusion, intra-operative radiotherapy) record both the surgery and the other modality.

Any systemic treatment which can be coded as a procedure through ICD-10-AM should be so coded (eg., stem cell or bone marrow infusion).

The Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI), which is a part of ICD-10-AM, can be used to classify procedures.
