I believe it's going to depend on the diagnosis. This appears to be an open procedure so 2866 is not correct. Maybe 28675 if this was due to an IP dislocation. If the dx is hammertoe, 28285 would be correct. Yes, fixation was performed. That is what the k-wire is for. Definitely not 28043 as no tumor is mentioned. If I were going to guess, which I wouldn't in the real world, I would guess this is a hammertoe correction since the Trim-It pin has, to my knowledge, not been reccommended for any other use. You may be able to bill for the removal of the previous pin but I'm not positive of that.
