My first question is do you currently bill for 51726? Notice in 2009 51726 does not have any codes below indented yet the three new codes under it - 51727, 51728, and 51729 are indented below 51726 (making 51726 the integral procedure to the 51727, 51728, or 51729). So, if you were currently performing and billing a 51726 then you should have no problem performing the 51728 ( you just would bill 51728 vs. 51726).
Not sure if this helped, but maybe.
