Resection of tricuspid posterior leaflet

  1. Default Resection of tricuspid posterior leaflet
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi! A patient had a Rt Atrial Myxoma resection (33120). My question is that he also had a Resection of posterior leaflet of tricuspid valve plus reconstruction, and I am not sure if this is included in Myxoma

    I am looking at code 33463 with mod 52. There are no CCI edits.

    Am I on the right track!?

    Thanks in advance~

    I agree with the Procedure code, but question the Modifier. Was the Valvuloplasty separate from the Myxoma? Look at modifier 59.
