HOW OWULD I CODE A LAPAROTOMY WITH AN EXCISION OF COLOVESICAL FISTULA?

For laparotomy with excision of colovesical fistula use code 44660 which states "Closure of enterovesical fistula; without intestinal or bladder resection". Since, you have not provided details of the operation such as whether the colon or bladder was resected or not, code 44660 is the best possible code.
