HEY ALL!! ONE OF MY DOCTOR'S RECENTLY DID A "PALATAL ADHESION" PROCEDURE. I HAVE READ ALL ABOUT IT AND FOR THE MOST PART SEEMS TO BE LINKED WITH CLEFT LIP/PALATE. HOWEVER, OUR PATIENT HAD BEEN SHOT THROUGH THE NECK AND WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH DYSPHAGIA AND THE NASAL SOUND. IS THERE A CODE FOR THIS?

ALL HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

BECKY, ENT CODER

I cannot find a code. I guess unlisted code 42299 needs to be used and it can be equated to the cleft palate code.
