Thread: MTP joint w/ K-wire

    Default MTP joint w/ K-wire

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    Dx:hammertoe deformity
    capsulotomy with extensor tenotomy was performed to release tension of the digit. The digit was percutaneously kept in place using .062 K-wire from a distal-to-proximal aspect, crossing the digits.

    No bone was removed....would this be enough to be 28285 or just stick w/ the 28270?

    thanks for any thoughts!

    There is not enough there for 28285.
