  • Any one able to help on this one. The patient wound up with metal particle from the total hip and this caused the synovitis and the complication code.

    Yes there is a Tcode for toxic effects of metal and then the Z96.6xx.
    Let me get you the Tcode

    The diagnosis codes look all right to me, except I would also use the Z code
    for status of total hip as the last diagnosis.
