2. Closed reduction of closed fracture, clavicle, with manipulation
3. Suture of superficial wounds of neck (3cm) and layer (intermediate) closure of wound of right shoulder (8cm)
4. Manual debridement of 3 toenails
5. Excision of 3 lesions:
benign lesion of shoulder, 4.2 cm benign lesion of hand, 5.1cm malignant lesion on face, 4.4 cm
6. Adjacent tissue transfer of chin defect; 9 sq.cm.
7. Destruction of .4 cm malignant lesion of the neck.
8. Nipple reconstruction.
9. Patient is seen in the E.R. after an accident. A 3.0 cm wound of the upper arm required a layered closure and a 1.0 cm superficial laceration of the left cheek was repaired.
10. Operative Note:
This 59 year-old male developed a sebaceous cyst on his right upper back. After ensuring a comfortable position, the skin surrounding the cyst was infiltrated with 1/2% Xylocaine with epinephrine to achieve local anesthesia. An elliptical incision surrounding the cyst was made; total excised diameter of 5.0 cm. The cyst wall was dissected free from the surrounding tissues. Hemostatis was obtained and the wound was irrigated. The wound was closed with 3-0 Vicryl, figure-of-eight stitches.
What type of lesion was removed? benign or malignant? How was it removed?
What is the excised diameter of the lesion? Was this a layered closure?
11. Operative Note: Excision of epidermal benign lesion on dorsum hand measuring 1.9 cm X 0.5 cm x 0.8 cm.
The hand was prepped and draped in the usual fashion after obtaining satisfactory analgesia with infiltration of local anesthesia. An elliptical skin incision was made surrounding the lesion. The skin lesion was completely excised and closed with interrupted
4-0 Dexon for the subcutaneous tissue and skin with 4-0 Dexon. Neosporin ointment was applied.
CPT code for procedure would be:
1. Closed treatment of three vertebral process fractures requiring a cast.
2. Under general anesthesia, manipulation of a right shoulder joint with external fixation.
3. Lengthening of four tendons of the elbow.
4. Open treatment of a carpal scaphoid fracture with internal fixation applied.
5. Arthroplasty of two metacarpophalangeal joints.
6. Amputation, lower arm, using Krukenberg procedure
7. Replantation of right arm, including the neck of the humerus through the elbow joint, following a complete traumatic amputation.
8. A patient is diagnosed with osteochondroma of the scapula. The surgeon excises the tumor.
