    Hello all,

    I can't find much info on this procedure.

    patient had 31255-50 31267-50 31240-50 and 30930-50

    at the end of the note states:

    Then the left nasofrontal duct region was cannulated with the Acclarent equipment. The Stratus stent, i.e.,a drug-eluting stent, was placed in the nasofrontal duct region and this stent was injected with Kenalog, then trimmed and packed with nasopore.

    office is looking at 31296 but l'm looking at 31299 compare to 30200...can anyone give me anymore info?

    Thanks!
    Jamie
