    Default mesh insertion

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have an idea what to use for this procedure? The only "mesh insertion" codes I can find need to be used with primary procedure but the mesh insertion IS the primary procedure? The pt has already had a cadaveric sling procedure in the past and is still having leakage. Any ideas or advice?

    I would use an unlisted code.
