    is 727.81 the correct code for tendon adhesions flexor digitorum,middle finger?

    I would use 727.89. 727.81 is for tendon sheath contracture.

    For tendon adhesions flexor digitorum,middle finger 727.89 is appropriate than 727.81.

    yes it is still in the process of adhesion only and non specific; contracture status not reached or documented yet. So 727..9 is the appropriate one for this scenario
