    AAPC: Back to School
    hello all,

    Diagnostic laparoscopy and clipping of adhesion
    DX: Pelvic pain

    Part of op note:

    There was noted that there was sort of like a band adhesion or a fold of peritoneum by the bladder which was just incised to see if this would help her with her pain.

    58660 or 49320 ?? Thanks MUCH!

    I would use 58660. The 49320 is 'diagnostic, with or without collection of specimen(s) by brushing or washing.' I don't know if 58660 is a perfect fit - if it wasn't an adhesion that the surgeon took down - but it's closer than 49320. Hope that helps.
