  2. SuperCoder Posted 6 Year(s) ago

    Require to know certain details of the Px, such as till what depth the incision was done - subcuatneous level or below fascia and muscle layer. Or is this a removal of mass from inside abdominal cavity? In case of mass/tumor excision from inside of abdominal cavity, via open method, choose the suitable code from range 49000-49255. You need to see the type of the "mass", its weight, exact processof excision etc.
