Pop-Fossa Block

  1. Default Pop-Fossa Block
    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone tell me how to code a popliteal fossa nerve block? Is this the same as a popliteal nerve or sciatic nerve injection and if not, what is the difference?
    Also, should I use an unlisted procedure for pop-fossa catheter?
    Thank you.

    Popliteal blocks:
    I use 64445 for single injection and 64446 for continuous catheter.
