    Default Code for cadaveric bone graft

    AAPC: Back to School

    Physician did: Revision nonunion open reduction and internal fixation left distal
    radius with cadaveric bone graft

    Is there a better code than 25400?

    Not as far as I know. 25400 includes the fixation and graft (just did one today). Unless something else was done by the doc, that's the code.

    25400 states without graft? I do not see a good code for allograft, you may end up with an unlisted

    Allograft is included in this one. The cadaver graft is already prepared, just requires placement, so unfortunately there is no additional work to consider.
