Schapoid Fixation

  1. Default Schapoid Fixation
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to find a code for percutaneous skeletal fixation of a scaphoid fracture. I don't see one.


  2. Default
    I would have to go with unlisted, 25999. There really is nothing that I could see for that.

  3. #3
    double check documentation..make sure the word "incision" is not there before you use the unlisted. If the word is "incision" is anywhere to be found, you may be able to use the open code (depending on documentation)
