    Need help for CPT Code for transoral excision of elongated styloid process(Eagles Syndrome). Would the unlisted code 21499 be best or is there something better? Thanks

    We've done several of these, and we use the 21499. I researched it, and I never did find a code that described the procedure.

    I'm pretty sure that Otolaryngology Coding Alert once had an article that recommended the 21499 for this procedure. I remember because I used to use 21899 (oops).
