    I have 44382 for the ileoscopy w/ bx via stoma. Where can I find the balloon dilation?

    Thanks,

    If the balloon dilation is via stoma, I don't see a procedure for that other than the 44799 (unlisted). In that case a would attach the operative report to the claim. Just my opinion, open to any other feedback.
