    AAPC: Back to School
    I am stumped on this. The Surgeon is doing a primary repair of the Pectoral muscle/tendon. I thought maybe 24341, but the pectoral is located in the chest, so now I am confused. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Good Morning! One of my surgeons recently performed a reconstruction of the pectoralis major with a tendon transfer. We went over this case together, and decided upon CPT 23395, muscle transfer, any type, shoulder or upper arm, single.

    Another surgeon here performs a straight pectoralis repair, and chooses CPT 23410, repair of ruptured musculotendinous cuff, open, acute. Another uses 23412 for repair of the subscapularis.

    Hope this helps you! Have a good day.
