For Laparoscopy w/ Left salpingectomy AND evacuation of hemoperitoneum for an ectopic pregnancy Use single code 59151 (Laparoscopic treatment of ectopic pregnancy; with salpingectomy and/or oophorectomy) as Evacuation of fluids from the abdomen is included in any abdominal surgical procedure.
For Dx for Ectopic in Left tube w/ a heart beat use O00.1 along with this use additional code from category Z3A to identify the specific weeks of pregnancy.
