Thread: percutaneous pinning scapholunate

    Cool percutaneous pinning scapholunate

    AAPC: Back to School
    Dr did arthroscopic debridement of the wrist. Then removed the arthroscope and did
    a percutaneous pinning of the scapholunate joint under flouroscopic guidance.

    I have the 29846, but my question is the percutaneous pinning. I cannot find a code.
    Has anyone had this one before? Please, I really need some help on this one.

    my thought is the unlisted code 25999 and compare to 28546.
