Good morning all,
I code for Interventional Radiologists but have a report here for a procedure that I have never seen before & was hoping some of you ortho coders might know how to handle it.
The procedure was a CT-guided injection of lidocaine around the nuts & along the tension band of a cerclage wire which transfixes a healed (pathologic) fracture of the rt mid humeral diaphysis. It came from the hospital as a 20605 but I'm not sure that is appropriate as this is not a joint or a bursa. I was also looking at 20550-20552 but those don't seem right either. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
