Urology/Penile vein

Cherie Posted Thu 22nd of October, 2015 11:44:34 AM

My doctor did suture ligature of a vascular penile injury. This was a complication from a circumcision on a day old infant. He sutured bleeding of the frenulum. Not sure how this would be coded. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks.

CPT Code 12041 with Modifier 78 (i.e appended to a subsequent procedure that requires a return to the operative suite for an unplanned condition) is appropriate code for this scenario.
