Exploratory laparotomy, reduction of incarcerated small bowel that had protruded thru vagina , and closure vaginal cuff dehiscence
This was able to be reduced by one hand in vagina one hand in abdomen
I was thinking 57200 and 44050???? too much?

I suggest you to use CPT code 57268. This code is for repair of enterocele, vaginal approach (separate procedure). In this procedure, the physician repairs the vaginal wall where the small bowel in pushing through to the vaginal canal. This is a vaginal approach procedure. After the provider dissects the enterocele sac from the vagina and the rectum, he enters and explores it to make sure that no small bowel or omentum adhesions are present. He sutures the sac closes and removes any excess vaginal wall.
