Marsupialization of humerus housed in the abdominal cavity

I am totally at a loss as to how to code this...........My trauma physician obtained a TRAUMA patient with a mangled upper extremity,  He housed all of the humerus bone into the abdominal cavity and will do an ORIF in about a month after removing the bone from the abdominal cavity.  I'm at a loss as to what CPT code to bill for the marsupialization...Any help would be much appreciated, TIA!


  • Have you considered using an unlisted code referencing 61316?  You could do another unlisted at the time of retrieval and reference 62148.
