transfer of anterior tibial tendon to talar neck

LaShawn Posted Thu 06th of August, 2015 10:39:18 AM

Please see the information below transfer of the tibial tendon to the talar neck for congenital vertical talus . I listed 27690 but also looked at 28262. Please advise.
We placed a Freer elevator on the dorsal aspect of the joint
capsule and advanced it across the midfoot thus keeping the neurovascular
bundle and other tendons dorsal to the Freer elevator. ...We noted that the
anterior tibial tendon was tight, so we released it distally for later
transfer to the talar neck. We released the dorsal capsule of the talonavicular
joint and to a lesser extent the calcaneocuboid joint....

Bill CPT code 27690 for Tendon transfer.
Bill CPT code 28264 as capsulotomy was performed on mid tarsal joint (talonavicular joint and calcaneocuboid joint).
