I have a case postop states submandibular salivary gland mucus retention cyst

in the report it states "after complete removal of salivary gland"

this was an excision. so you think i should be looking at 42408 or 42440?

thanks for any help

If the entire gland was removed, 42440 sounds correct. If only the retention cyst was removed, then I would go with 42408.
