Thread: Tenodesis, Peroneus Brevis to Peroneus Longus

    Default Tenodesis, Peroneus Brevis to Peroneus Longus

    AAPC: Back to School
    Surgeon "peroneus brevis was tenodesed to the peroneus longus proximally and distally to torn peroneus longus tendon". Can't find a code for tenodesis in this area but did find tendon transfer 27690, but that includes muscle redirection. These two tendons are right next to each other. Any input would be appreciated.

    You have the right idea! I would use 27691. Your surgeon indicated "...brevis was tenodesed to the peroneus longus proximally and distally..." (redirected the brevis to the longus proximally and distally). Add on 27692 if another tendon was transferred.
