Thread: Arthroscopic capsular release

  1. #1

    Default Arthroscopic capsular release

    AAPC: Back to School
    What code is used for this procedure. I know it's not the same as capsulorrhapy, that's for instability. This is for adhesive capsulitis done through the scope. The procedure says the capsule was found to be extremely tight on the anterior aspect. The capsule was released with the use of a hook burner, starting at the rotator cuff interval and extending along the anterior aspect of the glenoid. The release extended around the inferior glenoid to the posterior aspect of the glenoid to approximately the 5 o'clock position. The shaver was used to remove any excess tissue.
    Any input would be appreciated.
