Debridement of Scar Tissue CPT Assistance
Would anyone be able to direct me in the correct CPT code for the note below? The thought was the patient developed a postop infection but found only scar tissue. I looked at 26440 but not 100% on due to done for joint contracture which is not the case. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you Jody
I re-incised the previous incision over the A1 pulley at the base of the middle finger. I carried dissection down through subcutaneous tissue to the level of the flexor tendon. There was no purulence. There was an abundant amount of scar tissue surrounding both the FDP and FDS tendons. Scar tissue was debrided using a pair of scissors.
