    It just depends on the other procedure, and the op note itself.

    Depends on what is in the op note, but you could look at 44180. Lysis of adhesions is included with most other laparoscopic procedures unless the adhesions are dense, blocking the operative field or obscuring the anatomy for another procedure.
