  1. Question is there a cpt for gastrojejunostomy leak repair ?
    Exam Training Packages
    Hello,
    Does any one know what CPT to use for a gastrojejunostomy leak repair by suture at the anastomosis site, (open procedure).
    The patient had an Roux-en-Y revision several years ago.

    Thanks,

    Not sure what method and technique were used, but you might want to begin with CPTs 44602 - 44680.
