MARSUPIALIZED VALLECULAR CYST

Donna m Posted Thu 06th of November, 2014 13:46:43 PM

What is the CPT code for a marsupialized vallecular cyst? I'm looking at 31535??? A Dedo Laryngoscope was inserted into the oral cavity. This then demonstrates a mucous cyst in the vallecula that is marsupialized and a portion sent for pathologic examination.

Yes, code 31535, Laryngoscopy, direct, operative, with biopsy will best match the above scenario. Thanks !!
