Doctor coded procedure as Ileoscopy with foreign body removal from ileostomy. What CPT code would I use? Portion of the report below.
The colonoscope was introduced through ileostomy and advanced under direct visualization until pouch was reached at a distance of 15 cm. Tip of enema in pouch. Distal tip grasped with snare and removed.
Finding: Plastic tube approximately 6 inches long in pouch. Removed with snare.
