Thread: Palacos with gentamicin in TKR

    Default Palacos with gentamicin in TKR

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there anyone out there who have billed this with a 11981 with a TKR 27447? I'm wondering if Palacos is considered a cement spacer.

    Hi, I have not billed it with the code you gave; however I did find information on the web that said Palacos is a high contrast bone cement.

    Hope that helps!
