What should be the best DX code to used?

Hi there,
Need help...
My doctor's assestment to one of our patient was:
1(Primary)-272.0--for hypercholesterolemia
2 --E870.9--accidental cut, puncture or hemorrhage during unpecified medical care.

What question is is there any other DX code not e-code for the 2ndary diagnosis?

The reason for appointment of the patient is for (stitches removal)
thanks ...

Why don't you tell us exactly what the patient's diagnosis is and it would be easier for someone to help you with determining the dx codes.
