When a VP shunt is placed and a revision of the left frontal scalp wound is done with a local flap advancement, what would you code for the revision and flap advancement. Please list all codes.

Use CPT 62230 for VP shunt revision and CPT 15572 for flap advancement.

Scalp rotation flap; if the subperiosteal dissection was done all the way to the temporal fossa; would you still charge 15572? If not, what cpt code would you code?
