Thread: Vascularized Bone Graft of Lunate

  1. #1

    Default Vascularized Bone Graft of Lunate

    AAPC: Back to School
    Do you know what code(s) could be used for this procedure? The doctor hasn't done the surgery yet so I don't have an op report, but he wanted to know what codes are generally used for this type of procedure. I offered up 25430 (Insertion of vascular pedicle into carpal bone) but he said the procedure is more involved than that. Any suggestions of where we can look? Thank you!!

    was this for a "nonunion" see 25431 which includes obtaining graft?
