Laparoscopic repair of gastric perforatoin with omental patch

Loni Posted Thu 10th of December, 2015 17:01:13 PM

What is the proper code for the above?

"Laparoscopic repair of gastric perforation with omental patch". Is it one unlisted code to include both, such as 43659 or 49329, or do we code 43840 for the repair of the gasric perforation and a separate, unlisted code for the omental patch?

Thanks for your query,

CPT code 43659 is sufficient to code for this scenario. There is no need to code omentum patch additionally.
