Takedown of Hepatic Flexure

  1. Default Takedown of Hepatic Flexure
    Medical Coding Books
    There is a separate code for takedown of splenic flexure (CPT 44213) but not the hepatic. Am I to understand that the hepatic is just bundled into the overall procedure?

    That's been my assumption.
