Arthroscopic labral repairs that are not SLAP

    How are people coding the repair of, say, an anterior-inferior labral tear of the shoulder with no documentation of SLAP or capsulorrhaphy? The surgeon arthroscopically places labral nails....that's it. I can find no documentation on this subject, so any links or references you might provide would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Check out this article from AAOS. They explain it pretty well.
