Removal of lactiferous ductal system

Sonja Posted Thu 19th of November, 2009 02:07:47 AM

Anyone know how to code this??

SuperCoder Answered Thu 19th of November, 2009 07:30:19 AM

I can only come across two codes i.e. 19110 and 19112. Where the CPT code 19112 can be coded only in case of lactiferous duct fistula, where else for the CPT code 19110 a suspicious/diseased lactiferous duct or papilloma lactiferous duct is excised. The dx supporting this can be either malignant/benign neoplasm, nipple discharge, or tumor. And if any of these CPT doesn't support then we can go for the unlisted 19499.

Thanks, the 19110 fits perfect!
