Hello,
Please help with the following PX:

The physician did a diagnostic Lap with Graham's patch( a surgical techinque that is used to close duodenal perforatios. A piece of omentum is used to cover the perforation). DX: peritonitis secondary to anastomitic leak

The patient just had bariatric surgery 24 hours prior. The only code I found was 49329 unlisted.

49329-78 :cool:
1.997.4 :cool:
2.567.9

Is any of those codes correct?

the CPT 49326 looks like a good one to use but it is an add-on code for 49324 or 49325 and neither of those look good so my next guess would be the unlisted code you chose.
