HARVEST PF THE FASCIA

Report CPT code 57288 (Sling operation for stress incontinence (eg, fascia or synthetic)) for AUTOLOGOUS PUBOVAGINAL FASCIAL SLING application.

The CPT description of 57288 does not include harvesting of the graft. You can bill the harvesting of fascia separately accordingly. For a fascia lata graft, code 20920 (fascia lata graft; by stripper) or 20922 (... by incision and area exposure, complex or sheet). For a rectus fascia graft, CPT 20926 (tissue grafts, other [e.g., paratenon, fat, dermis]).
