Thread: removal of Kenalog deposits

    Default removal of Kenalog deposits

    AAPC: Back to School
    How do you code the removal of Kenalog deposits? A small incision was made and the crystallized Kenalog pieces were removed. No sutures involved. The patient had sub Tenon injection of Kenalog previously. I wouldn't think this would be considered removal of a foreign body.

    I would agree, foreign body removal by site on the body.
