Can any of you think of any situations in which this might happen (and be payable)? I'm specifically thinking of intraoperative procedures, for example, 76937-26 or 77003-26.

No. Assistant surgeon bills the same code as the primary surgeon. These codes have a Assistant Surgery indicator of 9 - Concept does not apply
