Sig w/ decompression of volvulus, any method


Bridgewater, VA
Best answers
I have a question about procedure code 45337. It is a sig w/decompression of volvulus, any method. What would be a method that the doctor would use to perfom this procedure? Would rectal tubing be a way to perform this. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I have never had to code this procedure before. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
