    I am not familiar but you can code 43659 (Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, stomach)

    I agree with the 43659 and would send a letter stating that it is comparable to the open code 43840.

    Question I am also stuck can you help me?
    I am confused on how to code this. A patient was undergoing a placement of a sling. She also had a cystoscopy. I originally ruled out 57287. However I am stuck with 57288 and 52001, and 51992 and 52001, I read the rules and it stated not to report the 52001 in conjunction with 57288? Now it did not state if it was laparoscopic or not so I could rule out 51992, and code it as 57288 alone since I should not report 52001? I my be thinking too much on this one, but my mind is telling me to code 57288 alone. Can anyone help?
