Here is from AAOS Bulletin 2005- Revision of poly liner

Q. How do I report the removal/exchange of the acetabular polyethylene liner along with revision of the femoral head?

This would fall under revision two-component code 27134-Revision of total hip arthroplasty; both components, with or without autograft or allograft-with modifier -52 appended.

Does anyone have a source document that states if you are revising the poly and femoral components, to use a 52 modifier?
