    Default close reduction, application of ex fix

    AAPC: Back to School
    can anyone tell me if this is right or not? The patient was taken to the operating room and general anesthesia was induced. The pt rt leg was sterilely prepped & draped. Under fluoroscopy 2 proximal & 2 screws were placed 2 in the femur and 2 in the tibia. a spanning frame was placed over the fracture. The fracture was reduced and the ex fixator tightened.

    this is a supracondylar intercondylar fx of rt femur.

    27510, 20690.

    thanks for any help you can give.

    I think just 20690.
