Needing a bit of help understanding a lay description, comparatively with op note. Looking at lay description for 20694. Not sure how "in depth" this codes take the procedure.

Lay Description:
"Removal, under anesthesia, of external fixation systemLay Description
The physician removes the external fixation frame and pulls pins out manually while the patient is under anesthesia. Incisions are closed with sutures and Steri-strips."

Does this include OP NOTE: "ellipsing pin tracts getting fibrous mushy tissue in the subcu area of the pin tracts, debriding down to bone and using a currette to currette out each of the pin tracts?"

Thanks in advace!
