    Question replacement of femoral interlocking screws

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient with an intramedullary rod of the distal femur and needs the interlocking screws replaced. How would you code this? I have gone through all of the revision & fracture codes... would it be coded as an open treatement of fracture 27506?? Thanks in advance!
