Adjacent tissue transfer or rearrangement
The physician transfers or rearranges adjacent tissue to repair traumatic or surgical wounds of the trunk. This includes, but is not limited to, such rearrangement procedures as Z-plasty, W-plasty, ZY-plasty, or tissue transfers such as rotational or advancement flaps. Report 14000 for defects that are 10 sq cm or less and 14001 for defects that are 10.1 sq cm to 30 sq cm.
Adjacent tissue transfers include excision of the defect or lesion so excision codes should not be reported additionally
