Thread: shoulder question

    Default shoulder question

    Any suggestions? Op note states:

    The deltoid was released off the anterior acromion and split a short distance. The inferior half of the acromion did not require resection. There was a nice open subacromial space in the previous acromioplasty. There was some thick bursal tissue in the subacromial space and some adhesions and these were broken up and removed. The inspection and palpation of the rotator cuff revelaed that the cuff was somewhat loose but intact. There were no defects. No tears.

    would this be 23130 or 23929...or something else?

    Thanks
    Sherry
