High Priority MeasureYes
Percentage of patients undergoing any surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse who sustains an injury to the bladder recognized either during or within 1 month after surgery
This measure is to be submitted each time a prolapse organ repair surgery is performed during the performanceperiod ending November 30th. There is no diagnosis associated with this measure. This measure may be submitted by eligible clinicians who performthe quality actions described in the measure based on the services provided and the measurespecific denominator coding.
The listed denominator criteria is used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions allowed by the measure. The quality-data codes listed do not need to be submitted for registry submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those registries that utilize claims data
All patients undergoing anterior or apical pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery
Denominator Criteria (Eligible Cases):
All patients, regardless of age
Patient procedure during the performance period (CPT): 57106, 57110, 57120, 57240, 57260, 57265, 57268, 57270, 57280,57282, 57283, 57284, 57285, 57423, 57425, 57556, 58263, 58270, 58280, 58292, 58294, 58400
Total number of patient's receiving a bladder injury at the time of surgery to repair a pelvic organ prolapse with repair during the procedure or subsequently up to 1 month post-surgery
INVERSE MEASURE - A lower calculated performance rate for this measure indicates better clinical care or control. The “Performance Not Met” numerator option for this measure is the representation of the better clinical quality or control. Submitting that numerator option will produce a performance rate that trends closer to 0%, as quality increases. For inverse measures, a rate of 100% means all of the denominator eligible patients did not receive the appropriate care or were not in proper control.
NUMERATOR NOTE: In order to meet the measure, bladder injury is sustained as a result of theprolapse surgery.
Performance Met: Patient sustained bladder injury at the time of surgeryor discovered subsequently up to 1 month post-surgery (G9625)
Denominator Exception: Documented medical reasons for not reporting bladder injury (e.g. gynecologic or other pelvic malignancy documented, concurrent surgery involving bladder pathology, injury that occurs during a urinary incontinence procedure, patient death from non-medical causes not related to surgery, patient died during procedure without evidence of bladder injury) (G9626)
Performance Not Met: Patient did not sustain bladder injury at the time of surgery nor discovered subsequently up to 1 month postsurgery (G9627)
