This patient was admitted to our hospital in swingbed for PT/OT and status post reivison of the hip.  The patient previously had a hip fx, it was pinned and then had nonunion and pain.  They did a revision of the trochanteric nail in the hip and then transferred here here for rehab.
I'ave got the rehab code but what V code would I use for the status post revision?  Would I use V54.89  or V45.89?
