    Default Eyebrow laceration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know which organ system an eyebrow laceration would fall under according to 1995 EM Guidelines? I'm leaning toward "skin," but it could be eye. Thank you!

    Eyebrow laceration is a skin repair and the procedure code is in the 12000 series codes, depending on depth and length of laceration repair.

    believe you are asking what this is for an exam.
    You are correct it would be skin.

    Skin is correct, it is coded from the integumentary system
