    If it is an "excision" and the procedure is "open" and it is not an ovarian cyst, I would go with 49203 - 49205.

    For the ablation, if it was hysteroscopic I would use 58563.

    Default Paratubal/ Paraovarian cyst like Gartners Cyst-cyst or Duct of the Epoophoron, remnan

    Paratubal/ Paraovarian cyst like Gartners Cyst-cyst or Duct of the Epoophoron, remnants of Mesonephric duct - coding;
    We cannot locate them under the original main categories of female reproductive systems.
    If we know from where they come from embryonically (developmentally), then we would know that we have to locate them in the pelvic peritoneal tissues/ligaments.
    They are vestigial structure mostly of embryological and morphological interest, they occasionally accumulate fluid and form Cysts ( eg Gartners Cyst.). These embryonal elements contained in mesosalphyx between the uterine tubes and the ovary.
    So look for these Cysts in the Category: Peritoneum Section: Surgery,Sub section: Digestive system.
    If Laprocsopic excision of lesions of the ovary/pelvic visera or peritoneal surface use 58662.
    Lap surgical: with aspiration of cavity or CYST( eg.ovarian cyst) single or multiple 49322.
    Excision or destruction, open, intra abdominal tumors, CYSTS or Endomeriomas, 1 or more peritoneal, mesenteric or retroperitoneal tumors primary or sec -largest 5cm diameter or less 49203; 5.1-10.0 cm: 49204; largest tumor greater than 10.0 cm diameter – 49205.
    I hope that this holds good for those cysts and mass.
    THANK YOU

    Default Endometrial thermoablation

    WELL AS SAID, IF IT IS HYSTEROSCOPIC,58563.

    If it is without hyteroscopic guidance procedure using hydrothermal technology or heated water., I opt for 58353

    Endometrial Ablation with Water-a procedure using hydrothermal technology or heated water. The method may be by using a hysteroscope, or intrauterine camera, for visualization during the procedure.
