The provider submitted 31238.
Nasal/sinus endoscopy, surgical; with control of nasal hemorrhage
I've never seen it done with Surgicel and that is not in the description of the procedure. Is this still the appropriate code as it is described as being performed (Electrocautery instruments or lasers are placed parallel to the endoscope and are used to stop internal nasal bleeding).

Using the endoscopic navigation, sheets of Surgicel were applied topically all over the sites of mucosal irritation source of her nosebleed bilaterally on the left side and on the right side controlling the bleeding successfully under direct visualization with the endoscopic navigation.
