    Medical Coding Books
    Can anyone help with coding the following:
    Doc performed a anorecta exam under anesth 45990 and also did insertion of Goretex fistula plug?
    Would I just use the unlisted code? Please help?

    I use the code 0170T - Repair of anorectal fistula with plug (eg, porcine small intestine submucosa [SIS]).
