Finger ligature?

  1. Default Finger ligature?
    Exam Training Packages
    One of our ped docs did an in-office ligature on a newborn's 6th finger. CPT code? This one has me stumped

  2. #2
    Milwaukee WI
    Default Polydactyly 11200
    If you look up polydactyly in your CPT you'll be directed to CPT 26587 ... BUT ... when you look at 26587 there is a parenthetical remark -
    (For excision of polydactylous digit, soft tisssue only, use 11200.)

    Hope that helps.
