    Default sinus irrigation with sinus surgery

    Does anyone know if maxillary sinus irrigation is bundled in with maxillary antrostomy.

    Thanks,

    CPT note for Accessory Sinuses / Endoscopy states "a surgical sinus endoscopy includes a sinusotomy (when appropriate) and diagnostic endoscopy". The Coder's Desk Reference describes the sinusotomy procedure as including drainage and irrigation, so I would say it is bundled.
