Surgery coding for cardiology

    When you are coding for integumentary, the closure is not mentioned. What is an interrupted stitch of 2-0 Vicryl and another interrupted stitch of 3-0 Vicryl. Is that considered closures? Help

    sounds like a simple closure to me. What code series are you looking at? What kind of procedure?

  3. Default
    What kind of procedure?
