    Default I wil give it a shot
    Sounds to me like there are loose bodies in the ankle from a previous fracture. If the loose bodies are in the joint consider 27650. The acessory os needs a location (bone) it is excised from. For example it could be 27635 (tib. or Fib) 28100 (calc. or talus). These are tough to code without the location detail and history of the loose bones.
