the pt had an infection of the hysterotomy and the provider reopened the C-section incision to removed the necrotic tissue and re-suture the hysterotomy. would the 49002 be the only appropriate code? she seems to think there should be more codes for the removal of the uterine necrotic tissue.

Codes for the removal of necrotic tissue are (11042-11046).
