Transvaginal closure of urthrovaginal fistula w/harvest of martius fat pad greaf

Denise Posted Thu 12th of May, 2016 09:30:40 AM
can you advise as to the cpt code(s) that needs to be listed for this procedure? I have looks at 57320 and 20926. Did not chose 57311 as it is not with the bulbocavernosus transplant. Thank you

Hi, Use CPT 57311 (closure of urethrovaginal fistula; with bulbocavernosus transplant) for closure of a urethrovaginal fistula. If you perform only the fat pad repair, append modifier -52 (reduced services) to 57311. There is no code for the pad.
