Codes 27650-27654 are the appropriate codes to report, and code selection is depending on whether a graft is used or not, and if it is a first time or secondary repair. A torn tendon is if there is some tearing or fraying, not necessarily complete tear. A rupture would be a complete tearing of the tendon itself.
