Thread: Revision of Infusa Port pocket

  1. #1

    Default Revision of Infusa Port pocket

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello: Our physician did a pocket revision for a Infusa port. He removed a Hematoma and revised by closing it in multiple layers from deep to superficial in such a way that there ws no dead space available for hematoma. The infusa-a-port was accessed and worked nicely.

    The infusa-a-port was put in just over a month from this procedure being done.

    There is not pocket revision for infusa-a-port but I was leaning toward 35860.
    Proc 10140 does not include the work that was done for the revision of the pocket.

    Any suggestions? Please!!!

    Thank you very much!

    Is the port in the arm or chest wall? I would suggest looking at 21501 or 23930 and see if they better fit the surgery.
