Subject: Re: Enterocutaneous Fistula Closure
UPC for the closure and 20501+ 76080 for contrast injecton prior to closure. That's about the best I can come up with.

How would the following note be coded? Probably an unlisted code either 44799 or 17999 and 76496? Thank you for your help.
HISTORY: Enterocutaneous fistula from a prior jejunostomy tube which has had persistent high volume output for 3 months.
PERCUTANEOUS ENTEROCUTANEOUS FISTULA CLOSURE USING FLUOROSCOPIC GUIDANCE
PROCEDURE: A PARQ conference was held and written consent to proceed was obtained. The skin overlying the left lower abdomen was prepped in a sterile fashion. Subcutaneous lidocaine was injected for local anesthesia. A 5-French Kumpe catheter was advanced into a enterocutaneous fistula and contrast dye was injected to opacify the fistula tract. A wire was then passed into the jejunum through the tract. The tract was then sequentially dilated. A 22-French sheath was advanced over the wire and positioned in the jejunum. A 7-mm Cook enterocutaneous fistula plug was then deployed within the enterocutaneous fistula tract under fluoroscopy. 1 g Ancef was flushed into the sheath. The sheath was removed. The device was then sutured to the skin using resorbable Vicryl suture. The device was trimmed and a Molnar disk was attached.
CONCLUSION: Successful placement of a percutaneous enterocutaneous fistula plug under fluoroscopic guidance. The patient was placed on a clear diet for two days. She will follow-up in radiology in two weeks.
