Patient fractured her left hip and underwent intramedullary nail placement of a left intertrochanteric femur fracture, The top screw subsided as the fracture compressed and healed, and is now prominent in her lateral thigh. The screw will be removed and replaced with a shorter screw. Would you report CPT code 20680-22, 27245-52 or unlisted and compare too??

Thanks for the help.
