    Default need some help please.
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a op note that reads wrist incision overlying the extensor compartments. The retinaculum was identified and freed up for the first, second and third extensor compartments. There was a separate slip for the extensor pollicis brevis tendon that was also released. Not sure what codes to use for this one. 25000 x3 or what????

    Thanks for your help!
