    Question Hematoma evacuation

    Promo: Code Books
    Does anyone know the appropriate CPT code for evacuation of a hematoma from a pacemaker pocket? This is not really a pocket revision I don't think but I cannot find another CPT code that fits.

    Check out codes 10140, 10160 or 10180, these might be more appropriate.
