SC joint reconstruction with allograft

  1. Default SC joint reconstruction with allograft
    New Call-to-action
    One of my surgeons is performing Sternoclavicular joint reconstruction with allograft tendon and I am looking at 21740. Can someone tell me if I am looking in the right direction?

    Thank you!

    Sorry on the late post, but you might want to look at 23120 or 23125. The partial (23120) is most common. 21740 is for reconstructive repair of pectus excavatum or carinatum, open approach, which is a repair of congenital issue. The chest wall has either a forward projection or a depression.

    Hope this helps,
