My doctor did a quadriceps repaid w/allograft.

I do not understand the difference between primary (27385 w/o graft) and secondary (27386 w/graft).

Can someone explain the difference between primary/secondary? :rolleyes:

this is purely "my" concept:

primary: new injury, taken to OR without any type of conservative treatment

secondary: Its been repaired previously OR old injury, may have some scarring from trying to heal on its own

any other takers or views or documentation?

(i know have documentation for treatment of an ankle that supports the above, so I use the same concept)
