    Without an op report for specifics, the closest code that comes up is 50541.

    Default Lap Renal Cyst Marsupialization
    It appears an unlisted code may be best....50549. There doesn't seem to be anything laparoscopically to best define this procedure, since the surgeon is only creating a pouch in the cyst for drainage and not excising or destroying it.
