Urology-Resection of necrotic/calcified tissue from prostatic fossa

Cherie Posted Fri 25th of July, 2014 06:58:27 AM

Hi,
I have a question concerning what code would I need for the following:

At this time we placed a 24 French continuous resectoscope. With the resecting loop we were able to get necrotic and calcified tissue from the prostatic fossa with some difficulty. After completely getting all of this tissue resected, we fulgurated any areas of active bleeding.

Code 52630 is an appropriate code to be used in the above scenario.

52630 represents 'Transurethral resection; residual or regrowth of obstructive prostate tissue including control of postoperative bleeding, complete (vasectomy, meatotomy, cystourethroscopy, urethral calibration and/or dilation, and internal urethrotomy are included)'.

Thanks !!
