Thread: Peroneus Brevis Tendon Ankle Reconstruction

    Default Peroneus Brevis Tendon Ankle Reconstruction

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please help with coding this: The peroneus brevis was found to be in 3 major portions consisting of 3 seperate slips, 2 of which were degenerated and patulous and one of which was healthy tendon tissue under tension. The 2 degenerated slips were debrided because a repair was not possible. Once a complete debridement of the degenerated tissue had been performed a peroneal retinaculum was repaired to a groove that had been made in the posterior aspect of the lateral malleolus with a rongeur. The repair was achieved with a super Revo anchor and imbrincation of the peroneal retinaculum. (All this done open procedure) Would this be 28208? Thanks!

    Did you look at 27676? Not sure about the debridement part though.
