Calculating Zplasty

  1. Default Calculating Zplasty
    Medical Coding Books
    I know zplasty falls under the flap codes. We don't perform these very much and the doctor is asking if there is a different way to calculate size for these.

    Does anyone have any documentation showing how zplasty sizes are calculated? Thank you.

    Found this in a quick search of google.

    Scroll down until you find Adjacent Tissue Transfer or Rearrangement. Then look at step 2 for the calculation. Hope this helps.
