4.1 This 45-year old man underwent colon resection for carcinoma of the transverse colon. The physician progress note on postoperative day 2 states anemia. Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels dropped significantly after surgery, and a blood transfusion was ordered. How is the anemia coded?
ICD-9-Code(s) :
