A: From what we can tell the septum pellucida is the structure that separates the anterior horns of the lateral ventricles, so when it is torn we would expect to see intraventricular hemmorage. The faculty seems to agree that the cerebral laceration should be coded (140688.3) in addition to the IVH. Although the IVH is a sequela of the tear, it is codable sequela, so please code both.
