What would I code beyond 13131 for this:
1.Left small finger complex laceration repair (1.5 cm).
2.Closed reduction, left distal phalanx fracture and splint application.
3.Examination of left proximal phalanx distal fracture under fluoroscopy and splint treatment.

CPT code 13131 for scenario 1 and 26750 with Lt modifier is appropriate for scenario 2.
