            oesophageal varices requires a principal diagnosis from Groom, Southern
            TAB-H40-1, an additional diagnosis from TAB-H40-2 and Health
            a procedure from TAB-H40-3. This will pick up the
            dagger and asterisk combinations, ie diagnosis codes in
            blocks K70, K71 and K74 with I98.21 Oesophageal
            varices in diseases classified elsewhere, with bleeding.
            However, for other causes of bleeding varices, the code
            I85.0 Oesophageal varices with bleeding will be
            sequenced as a principal diagnosis with the cause as an
            additional code, therefore they will not group to DRG
            H40Z. For example, oesophageal varices with bleeding
            due to portal hypertension, admitted for treatment of
            varices, will be coded to I85.0 with K76.6 Portal
            hypertension as an additional diagnosis. 2) DRG H40Z
            will also not pick up schistosomiasis (B65 codes) with
            bleeding oesophageal varices, which is a dagger and
            asterisk combination but B65 codes are not included in
