Thread: Cystectomy of 8 cm cyst on right distal mesosalpinx

  1. #1

    Question Cystectomy of 8 cm cyst on right distal mesosalpinx

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm questioning which CPT best fits this procedure since it was not an ovarian cystectomy and ovaries and tubes remained intact. 2011 Coding companion lists laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy as 58661 which includes removal of adnexal structures. 58925 lists that the procedure be dones thru an abdominal incision. My provider did the procedure thru the umbilicus with laparoscope. Can someone help to clarify?

  2. #2


    58662 laparoscopic, Surgical; with fulguration or excision of lesions of the ovary, pelvic viscera or peritoneal surface by any method.
