    Default Closure of Gastrocutaneous Fistula

    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

    I need help finding the correct CPT code for endoscopically-placed metal clips to close a gastrocutaneous fistula. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks Stacey

    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?
