basil thumb 25447 done.....
"distal aspect of the 1st dorsal compartment tendon sheath was identified. I used the FCR tendon transfer to weave through 2 slips of the APL tendon and then back around the distal aspet of the FCR tendon that was left intact. The suspensionplasty was created with 2 weaves around both the APL tendon slips as well as the distal intact protion of the FCR tendon"

use 25310 rather 26480 in this case?

Thanks

My hand surgeon often does a combo procedure, and bills 25447 for the arthroplasty and 25310 for the tendon transfer :)
