I am looking to figure out the proper code for the application of a "Mystique fusion plate" to the front of vertebral bodies post an arthrodesis. The code I currently have is 22845, but I am hesitant to use this code because in my neurosurgery companion it specifies the code as "a flexible headed rod or cable inserted into angled screw heads.

Does anyone have any experience dealing with fusion plates or specificially this Mystique fusion plate? Doing a little online research I have learned that the "The Mystique plate is used for stabilizing the weak bony tissue around the fusion while it heals."

this website has an image of one -- http://birminghammedicalnews.com/news.php?viewStory=300

So far I have come up with either 22845 or 22842. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Brett
