    What is the correct fracture care code for S82.864A

  2. SuperCoder Posted 2 month(s) ago

    HELLO

    It is quite tough to tell you the exact CPT without any documentation, but as per above scenario, since Maisonneuve fracture is a fracture of the proximal fibula with displacement of the syndesmosis, the orthopedist does not treat the proximal fibular fracture, but reduces and repairs the syndesmosis. So, if your physician's operative report indicates that he performed this service, you should report 27829 {Open treatment of distal tibiofibular joint (syndesmosis) disruption, includes internal fixation, when performed}

    HOPE THIS HELPS!

    It is a closed fracture and the pt was seen in the office, not sure if the fx care code would be 27880 or 27760

    Hello

    As per above, 27760 {Closed treatment of medial malleolus fracture; without manipulation} seems to be the correct one, but still you need to check op-note to reach to the final conclusion.

    HOPE THIS HELPS!
