    Question cul de sac biopsy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help with a cpt code for a cul de sac biopsy done during a TAH. Please help!

    Cul de sac is Pouch of Douglas; it is nothing but the fold of peritoneum, on the abdominal cavity side -an extension of the peritoneal cavity between the rectum and back wall of the uterus in the female human body.

    For biopsy, look for peritoneal biopsy/pelvic peritoneal biopsy. Remember it is not retro peritoneal structure.
