    27385 Suture of Quadriceps or hamstring muscle rupture; primary procedure.
    The long head of the biceps femoris makes the Hamstring . So the biceps femoris can be coded for hamstring. Also note the code holds good for quadriceps also.
    This is a primary repair( Suture) too.
    But if yu can give info about what was the actual repair procedure undertaken appropriate code could be assgned.
    Any way ,I hope this gives some clue to procedure with more specificity
