Is there a CPT for bladder leakage checking by injection of methylene blue? Patient came in for CYSTOURETHROSCOPY under anesthesia. Diagnosis was for stress urinary incontinence, frequency and urge incontinence, as well as a periurethral cyst.
Operative report reads: "...I then injected methylene blue in to the bladder & filled the bladder. the scope was then removed. Gauze was then placed into the vaginal canal & left in place for 10 minutes. There was no leakage or staining blue of the gauze itself. At this point, the scope was removed & the procedure terminated."
Thank you in advance.
