Question


First course treatment/Surgery of Primary Site--Corpus uteri:  Is an omentectomy performed with a hysterectomy for an endometrial primary site recorded under Surgery of Other Site?  See Discussion.



Discussion


Per SEER 20140003, an omentectomy is not recorded under Surgery of Other Site when performed with a hysterectomy for an endometrial primary. Is this still correct?  CoC appears to have different guidelines stating in a forum that an omentectomy is coded in data item Surgical Procedure to Other Site. I would like to confirm SEER guidelines. Is this one of those unique situations that SEER and STORE differ? Our state follows SEER guidelines and would like to communicate the appropriate rules to our facilities.



Answer


Continue to record an omentectomy performed with a hysterectomy under Surgery of Primary Site and not as a separate procedure under Surgical Procedure of Other Site.  The guidance In SINQ 2014003 and 20091118 is unchanged.
