Hello all,

I have an op note that reads falope band on the right (58671) but on the left there was tearing of the tube so a band was only applied to the distal end, tried to apply a 2nd band proximal end but could not and ended up cauterized the proximal portion (58670).

Would you only bill 58671?

Thanks for any help :D

CPT book does not indicate that "52" should be used in cases where these procedures are done unilaterally.
