    Default Achilles tendon debridement - Any suggestions on this

    AAPC: Back to School
    Any suggestions on this op note would be great!!

    "The tendon was split open and degenerative material was debrided from inside and sent as a specimen. The wound was then irrigated. The tendon was the kind of rolled up since the interior was hollow and a running suture from top to bottom closed up the tendon. The Apligraf was then wrapped around the tendon and then sutured down to the tendon to add additional strength.".

    The only thing I can think of is the unlisted procedure 27899.
