    Looking for a CPT code for Closure of Gastrocutaneous fistula using fibrin glue via injection. No incisions were made, simply injected tract with the glue. Thanks

    How about 44650 Closure of enteroenteric or enterocolic fistula with a 52 modifier?

    44650 would refer to the closure of a fistula between loops of the small bowel or the small bowel and the colon, not a fistula between the stomach and the skin.

    How about 43870 with 686.9 as the dx code?
