resection rectal prolapse

  1. Default resection rectal prolapse
    Medical Coding Books
    There was 2-4CM of excess protruding rectal mucosa that was excised at teh dentate line and subtured due to rectal prolapse and necrosis. How would you code this? I looked at 45130 but I'm not sure this qualifies.

    Look at the lay description for 45541 to see if this qualifies.

  3. #3
    Default rectal prolapse

    i agree with 45130 since the prolapse mass has to be excised prior to fixation.

    Thank you,
