manual exploration of bloodclots under anesthesia

Lynn Posted Mon 30th of November, 2015 10:33:13 AM

after a C-section this pt had a pp hemorrhage. Our doc brought pt to or under general anesthesia and manually expressed of blood clots. Do you know of a code I can use or just exam under anesthesia 57410?

Hi,

There is no specific code for this procedure and I am not sure CPT 57410 would be appropriate for this scenario. As per my understanding, CPT 58999 (Unlisted procedure, female genital system, non-obstetrical) would be appropriate to code.
