Pt. had skull base intradural tumor resection done 5 months ago. Pt. developed left retromastoid CSF Fistula. Pt, has no sign of meningitis yet. Surgeon wants pt to have revision of the left retromastoid wound with closure of a spinal fluid fistula. Need help coding this procedure.

For suggesting exact code supercoder wil require documentation of operative note. As per limited information provided by you CPT code for closure of spinal fluid fistula is 63707.
