Post-Orchiectomy Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Range


**Note 1:** Record the range of the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test as documented in the patient record after orchiectomy and prior to further treatment. **Note 2:** Use the same laboratory test to record values in **Site-Specific Factor 14, Post-Orchiectomy Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Lab Value** and **Site-Specific Factor 15, Post-Orchiectomy Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Range**. **Note 3:** A lab value expressed in International Units/liter (IU/L) is equivalent to the same value expressed in milli-International Units/milliliter (mIU/ml). **Note 4:** If the initial post-orchiectomy hCG test remains elevated, review the subsequent tests until normalization or plateau occurs and use that test to code this field. **Note 5:** If the post-orchiectomy hCG test is unknown but the preorchiectomy hCG test was normal, use code 990. **Note 6:** If the post-orchiectomy hCG test is unavailable but a physician's statement of the result is documented, use codes 991-993. **Note 7:** For rare cases that are treated prior to orchiectomy or an orchiectomy is not performed, code the initial hCG range in this field and not in **Site-Specific Factor 9, Pre-Orchiectomy Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) Range**.
