CS Site-Specific Factor 7
Number of Examined Para-Aortic Nodes
Notes**Note 1**: Record the number of examined para-aortic nodes documented in the patient record. Apply the same instructions in General Rules, Part I for coding Regional Nodes Examined to this data item. **Note 2**: Under CSV0200, this site-specific factor incorrectly had a different meaning for code 000. All of the cases coded in CSv2 before CSv2:V0203 are reviewed and coded to the current codes.
