Bladder fistula

    I need help with a surgery report. My doctor did a excision fistula tract into the bladder and a closure of the fistula track. I am not having any luck finding anything on these two codes. Any suggestions?

    Take a look at CPT 44661 "closure of enterovesicle fistula with intestine and/or bladder resection". I don't know where the fistula communicates to, but if it's with an intestine, this covers both procedures that your doctor performed,
