Dr. performed TAH,BSO with Skene gland biopsy and marsupialization for Skene gland abscess. Pathology returned chronic inflammation, negative for malignant cells. What code do I use for the marsupialization? I could only find 53240 but that is for marsup of urethral diverticulum. Help please.

There is no appropriate CPT code for Marsupialization of Skene gland. Please use CPT code 53899 (Unlisted procedure, urinary system). Skene gland is also known as periuretheral gland. Skene gland drain into the urethra and near the urethral opening. Therefore, the unlisted code is the most appropriate CPT code.
