Hello:
MD did an "exploration of right neck for probable lymphangioma of right neck, with no abscess."
Subcutaneous fat is incised down to platysma which is incised. Flaps are developed superior and inferiorly. Submandibular gland is identified. Dissection proceeds posteriorly to SCM and deep to posterior belly of digastric. Dissection proceeds anteriorly to the subplatysmal space. No abscess is encountered. Tissues are soft without inflammation. Patient likely has a multiloculated lymphangioma. Procedure is aborted and platysma is closed with vicryl over a Pensrose drain. Incision is closed with vicryl for subdermis and running 4-0 for skin. No excision done. Not done for trauma.
What would the CPT codes be?
thank you
