Thread: hematoma blocks

    Default hematoma blocks

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our ED phys often document a hematoma block as a procedure that they performed. I have researched the CPT book and code it right and have been unable to find the correct CPT code. Can anyone HELP PLEASE!

    Please refer to the website below regarding Hematoma Block.

    I don't think this is something you would need to code in conjunction with an actual fracture procedure. (unless you do coding for anethesia as well?)


    Hope this helps......
