    Default Rectus Facial Flap

    AAPC: Back to School
    My physician performed a ventral hernia repair with mesh. The patient had dense adhesions He performed a midline closure of the anterior rectus sheath with coverage of abdominal wall with prolene mesh. Does anyone know of a code for the Rectus Facial Flap closure?:

    Take a look at code 15734. This is what we use for component separation.
