What CPT code would I use for a VATs diapragmatic plication

I have a chart for a pt. who has Diaphragmatic paralysis and shortness of Breath.  MD performed a thoracoscopic diaphragmatic plication.  what code would I use?  I only get referred to 39599 in my search.  I don't like using unlisted codes but will if I have to. What reference code should I use?

Thank you,



  • Look at 39545
  • Thank you.  Now I am looking for a CPT code for VATS Biopsy of Diaphragm mass.  Is there a code or should I use an unlisted?

    thank you for your help,
