    I am having trouble finding CPT for direct exploration, direct suspention microlaryngoscopy, thyroplasty with silastic implant.
    I am going to have to go unlisted 31599.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    You may want to go with 31588 instead for the thyroplasty.

    Just wondering.....were two different approaches used for these procedures?
