Does anyone know the code for this? The physician stated this, "repair of gastrocutaneous fistula".

Without seeing the whole op note, I cant give you an exact. But check 43870... Hope this leads you in the correct direction.

Post Op Note in Gastroenterology Forum

For an accurate response to surgical coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative/procedure note. Additionally, you will attract the attention of coders with specific expertise if you post in the specialty forum - Gastroenterology, in this case.

Hope that helps.
