    Default Question on 52630

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doc wants to code this as a 52630, but I'm not sure if this is correct, and I need a little outside help! Thanks guys!

    "A 24-French loop was then used to cut a channel through the prostatic stricture and into the bladder. The prostate was then resected removing essentially scar between 6 o'clock and 11 o'clock on the right and 6 o'clock and 1 o'clock on the left. This served to create a large pocket in the prostate which would accept the 24-French scope without difficulty.

    Any help is very greatly appreciated!

    52601. If the pt has a history of a prior turp, use 52630.

    Thats kind of the direction I was leading, but I'm new at this specialty, so I wasn't going to lean on my opinion alone. Thanks for the help!
