O43.029 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of fetus-to-fetus placental transfusion syndrome, unspecified trimester. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code O430 is used to code Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome
Twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS, also known as Feto-Fetal Transfusion Syndrome (FFTS) and Twin Oligohydramnios-Polyhydramnios Sequence (TOPS)) is a complication of disproportionate blood supply, resulting in high morbidity and mortality. It can affect monochorionic multiples, that is, multiple pregnancies where two or more fetuses share a chorion and hence a single placenta. Severe TTTS has a 60–100% mortality rate.
