CPT for Ileostomy with Ileoproctostomy

  1. Default CPT for Ileostomy with Ileoproctostomy
    Exam Training Packages
    Can someone help me with a code for an ileostomy with ileoproctostomy? I have found the ileostomy code, but not one for the combination. No mention of a colectomy.

  2. Default
    Looking at the description, would protectomy or partial protectomy codes apply. 44113 or 44114? if that series cant be applied then u are left with only ileostomy and unlisted for proctostomy

    Is this part of a subtotal (partial) colectomy? I know you said there was no mention of a colectomy. However, why else pull the ileum down and attach it to the rectum? What did they do with the Colon (large intestine)? Look at 44140-44147 and see if one of these fits. You may want to query the surgeon for clarification and verification.
