NAVICULAR CUNEIFORM ARTHRODESIS
Dr. is giving me 28730. Would you agree?
Procedure: Dissection carried out lateral to the anterior tibialis & medial to the neurovascular bundle. The navicular cuneiform dislocation was identified. This was debrided. The navicular cuneiform joint was then reduced & held with a K-wire. A second incision was placed over the lateral midfoot. The cuneiform & articulation joint of the navicular were exposed with laminar spreaders. The articular cartilage removed using a ring curette. The subchondral bone was then drilled. Crushed cancellous chips were then prepared and spread evenly into the joint with infuse allograft. A Wright medical 4-hold claw plate was placed over the cuneiform and navicular was drilled & filled with locking screws.
I see 28737 but there is no tendon lengthening being done. Thank you,
