    Smile evacuation of uterus

    Our patient had a spontaneous abortion and was scheduled for a D & C, but started passing tissue so surgery was cancelled. Two days later she came into the office, and during the exam the doctor removed some additional tissue with a ring forcep and was sent to pathology. The cervix was already dilated. I can not locate an accurate code for this procedure. I have looked at 58100 but not sure if this is correct. Thanks for any help!!!!

    I don't believe that 58100 would be correct. How far along was she and what does the procedure note and pathology say?
