    Question Electrofulguration?
    Medical Coding Books
    HI all, need a little help here. The doctor performed a Marsupialization of the bartholing gland code 56440, but he also did an elctrofulguration of the introitus of the vulva and of the perianal. What would be the CPT for that?

  2. Default
    Was it perineal or perianal?

    If PERIANAL, then you would have to report 46910(Simple),or 469249(extensive)

    and 56501 (if simple) and 56515 if extensive - for vulval,
    along with marsupialization Code 56440.
    Addundum Multiple procedure modifier would be needed for the above.

    Hope this helps.
