I have a patient with a complete head sternal tear (chest wall) to the pec tendon with intact clavicular head. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this tendon repair? all I get under Tenoplasty is for anesthesia codes. I need to code the repair. Help?

pectoralis major tendon repair

I have a patient with a complete head sternal tear (chest wall) to the pec tendon with intact clavicular head. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this tendon repair? all I get under Tenoplasty is for anesthesia codes. I need to code the repair. Help?

When i searched, I found CPT: 24341 Repair, tendon or muscle, upper arm or elbow, each tendon or muscle, primary or secondary (excludes rotator cuff).

Hope this helps.
