    Default Transrectal Vesiculotomy code anyone?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our urologist is planning a transrectal seminal vesicle aspiration. I don't find a code for that. The doctor says that the 55600 is close but not the correct approach. Any ideas to avoid the dreaded unlisted code? Thanks.

    My search also ended in 55600 and 55605 for Transrectal Vesiculotomy..
