    Default Coding help for shoulder

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anybody ever come across a code for repair of a pasta lesion in the shoulder??

    Thanks for your help.

    My understanding is that it is a partial avulsion of the supraspinatus tendon. As far as coding is concerned, determine if it was done arthroscopically or open and code accordingly.
