MP joint fusion question


Best answers
Patient recently had an arthrodesis of the MP joint, 26850.

However, the fusion has failed and the Dr is going to redo or revise it.

So my question is, what code would I use ? I am not finding a code for
a revision of an arthrodesis. So do I just use the 26850 again with a 76 modifier?

Please help
