Can some on please help me out with these procedures?

1. Packing of complex hepatic injury
2. Repair of muscular serosal injury to the anterior pylorus
3. Placement of abdominal vacuum-assisted device.


I was able to code the first procedures:

Right femoral vein central line placement= 36556
Damage control laparotomy = 49000 (I believe I do not report this)
Left hepatic trisegmentectomy = 47122
Ligation of portal vein = 37761
Cholecystectomy = 47600

Can you please assist me?

Thanks,

Please post op note in GENERAL SURGERY forum

1) you'll get a more qualified response if you post in the GENERAL SURGERY forum

2) For an accurate response to surgical coding questions, please post the scrubbed operative / procedure note.

I would never code from the procedure list. I code from the body of the report.

Hope that helps.
