Correction: Maxillectomy Determines Coding- Published on Tue, Jul 01, 2003
In the April 2003 Otolaryngology Coding Alert
, the answer for Unmask Ins and Exs of Sinus Access should have stated to use the same code for Weber-Ferguson (31225, Maxillectomy; without orbital exenteration
) as for the midfacial degloving approach. All versions of maxillectomy should be coded 31225 no matter what the incision is.
