Thread: urethropexy/ sacrospinous lig fixatoin

  1. #1

    Default urethropexy/ sacrospinous lig fixatoin

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please verify if these codes are correct: surgery performed:
    A&P repair, Sling, Urethropexy, sacrospinous ligament fixation of the vag. vault:

    57260- A&P

    I am going to ask if the urethropexy is pereyra (57289) or mmk/burch-(58140 simple or 51841 complicated)

    Sacrospinsous lig fixation -57282

    would this be correct?

    thanks in advance!

    Correct. However, did the physician use polypropoline mesh? You would then use 57267 for each A insertion and P insertion.
