Wiki Abdominal scar revision

Best answers
Hello. We have a patient who had exploratory lap, lysis of bowel adhesions, excision of colocutaneous fistula, primary repair of colon, and abdominal scar revision.

So far I have found 44180 for lysis of bowel adhesions and 44640 for excision of fistula.

I cannot find any code for abdominal scar revision. Can anyone help?

Thank you. Tammy
Scar revisions are addressed in the CPT book under guidelines for codes 13100-13153...complex repairs, select the appropriate coe for the site and size. Abdominal scar revision would fall under "repair, complex, trunk...".
