    Default Help, open placement ureteral sent

    Does anyone know what cpt code I would use for an open stent placement. Our urologist was called to consult intraoperativley for a bladder injury during a crash cecarean section. He did a complex cystorrhaphy, and open placement ureteral stents. Every code I can find is with cysto, or endoscopically. Should I use an unlisted code? Any help would be fantastic. Thank you!

    Along with your code for -rraphy, as a separate procedure, code 50605 with modifier 51.This procedure is not with scopy. I hope I am .helpful anyway

    Make sure you check your bundles. CCI just bundled (this quarter) 50605 with many bladder and ureter services.
