vaginal cuff dehiscence

  1. Default vaginal cuff dehiscence

    Two weeks after a total laparoscopic hysterectomy the patient comes in for surgical closure of vaginal cuff dehiscence. I am having a terrible time trying to find a procedure code that would work!!
    Can anyone help with this?
    Thank you!

    I recently had a similar case and based on my research the only code option is the unlisted code 58999.

    thank you for replying! That is the code I was leaning toward as a last resort. But it's good to hear it from someone else too!
