Arthroscopy Knee

  1. #1
    Default Arthroscopy Knee
    Medical Coding Books
    Op report reads:
    InThe ACL was noted to be avulsed off the femoral region. Inspection of the lateral compartment revealed no significant articular surface pathology...... the ACL stump was debrided, notchplasty performed...... Incision was deepened to the patella tendon in layers. The mid one third of the patella tendon was harvested with 10x25 mm bone plug at either end. Defect in patella was closed. The bone-tendon-bone graft was approximately sized on the table.

    What would be the appropriate cpt codes for the above note?
