Laparoscopic closure of duodenal perforation with omental graham patch

Cindy Posted Fri 03rd of July, 2015 07:51:47 AM

Is there a cpt code for this procedure done laparscopically? I find the open procedure, but am unable to find the Laparoscopic procedure. Please advise. Would you need to use the unlisted procedure and compare to 43840?
thank you

Well, you are right, it is for open procedure. So, it is appropriate to code CPT 44238 Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, intestine (except rectum). Hope it helps!
