Deborah h Posted Fri 11th of September, 2015 11:26:08 AM

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.
