does anyone have experience coding z-plasty? Please contact me at sfoote@sbrmc.org I have a physician that documented he did a z-plasty on a traumatic laceration repair. There is some confusion as to whether it actually is a z-plasty or a complex laceration repair. I have never coded plastics so any help will be greatly appreciated!

Z Plasty

When I was coding surgeries, Coding Clinic was very helpful in this area. Don't know if you have access so you can have it in writing?

When my doctors dictate a Z Plasty, depending on the size and location, I use 14000 - 14061.

Hope this helps
