Subdural Empyema

Nicole Posted Mon 12th of December, 2016 16:29:39 PM
If the doctor did a Craniotomy and evacuation of a subdural empyema. Would that still be considered the 61312 or 61314 cpt codes?

Hi,

The correct code will be 61320 or 61321. Use 61320 if abscess is located in the supratentorial region and use 61321 if  abscess is located infratentorial region.
