Laparoscopic deroofing of simple renal cysts (IPG226)
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on laparoscopic deroofing of simple renal cysts.
Solitary cysts in the kidney are common, but rarely cause any symptoms. Multiple cysts are less common and are usually due to polycystic kidney disease, which is an inherited condition. Laparoscopic deroofing involves draining the cyst and removing part of the cyst wall, which is done through small cuts in the abdomen using a fine telescope to see inside the body ('keyhole surgery').

M10.3 Endoscopic deroofing of multiple cysts of kidney
Note: Both options have been provided, as historically both options have been utilised.
The NHS Classifications Service of NHS Connecting for Health is the central definitive source for clinical coding guidance and determines the coding standards associated with the classifications (OPCS-4 and ICD-10) to be used across the NHS. The NHS Classifications Service and NICE work collaboratively to ensure the most appropriate classification codes are provided. www.connectingforhealth.co.uk/clinicalcoding
