    Default cystoscopy with clot evacuation & fulgration
    Base on the new cpt effective Jan, 2009 for Urology Association,
    52214 is Cystourethroscopy, with fulguration(including cryosurgery or laser surgery) of trigone, bladder neck, prostatic fossa, urethra, or periurethral glands
    -For transurethral fulguration of prostate tissue performed within the postoperative period of 52601 or 52630 performed by the same physician, append modifier 78)
    -For transurethral fulguration of prostate tissue performed within the postoperative period of a related procedure performed by the same physician, append modifier 78)
    -For transurethral fulguration of prostate for postoperative bleeding performed by the same physician, append modifier 78).
    Also, you should check with 52000, 52001 or 52002 and compare with your record that will make clear.

    I hope it will help.

    Good luck
