Medial Retinaculum Disruption

Margaret Posted Thu 29th of September, 2016 17:22:47 PM
Surgeon peformed a repair of the medial retinaculum disruption and patellar tendon rupture. I'm seeing conflicting information as to what the procedure code for the medial retinaculum repair is. I have 27380 for the patellar tendon repair what would be the medial retinaculum repair and also what ICD10 code would cover this diagnosis for disruption of the medial retinaculum? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

For the repair of patellar tendon rupture append CPT 27380 and for medial retinaculur disruption CPT 27385.

The ICD 10 for the same would be from S86.81 series.

Hope This Helps.

Thanks.
