Thread: toe mass excision

  1. #1

    Default toe mass excision

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    Procedure Perfomed: soft tissue mass excision of left hallux

    Path came back "viral wart"

    full-thickness incision was made along the medial hallux nail fold to completely excise this mass in toto down to the perosteum of the distal phalanx.
    There was not aggressive growth down to bone.

    28092 TA 078.10?? Any thoughts on this one?

    Sounds like the 1140x codes to me.

    I agree with Coderguy. It was just a full thickness excision. The physician did not state that the lesion was on the tendon, or that he excised into the capsule.
