I can't speak to ulcers, but I can help with necrotic wounds. For large areas of skin you can use 11000 and 11001. Don't let the "eczematous" throw you off. There is an "or" infected skin. Also specifically for necrotic wounds of abdominal wall, perinium or external genitalia are the codes 11004 to 11006. Your physician must document that it is necrotic and that it was debrided to the muscle, but the RVUs are much higher than 11043 debrided to muscle.
