Formalization of a guillotene BKA

Hwa Posted Mon 23rd of February, 2015 16:48:08 PM

Hello! My surgeons frequently perform guillotene BKA's for patients who have acute infections, then return a few days later for formalization of the amputation. I know I should use 27882 for the guillotene BKA for the first procedure, but for the second, should I use 27884 for secondary closure or 27886 for re-amputation?

Code 27884 would be more appropriate in above scenario. Thanks !!
