    Talking retromolar trigone code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all,

    Op note reads:

    The left retromolar trigone area of leukoplakia was excised, hemostasis obtained with bipolar, and closed with 4-0 Vicryl suture.

    I'm looking at 41826 528.6 and 528.79 (hyperkeratosis per path)

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I'd agree with 41826 and 528.6, but I'm not so sure about 528.79 from the op note you gave.
