    Thank you so much for your quick response...

    From the article I understand the coding guidlines for the CPT codes. My concern would be the ICD 9 codes.

    If I have a patient with multiple wounds with a 11043 depth, How would I listed the icd 9's reflecting the overall depth over 20 sq cms. Should I just choose one. and If I end up with over 8 wounds in total ???
