a lesion of her left vocal cord seen on office laryngoscopy. Today she is seen in the ambulatory suite for further examination of this lesion, using the operating microscope. After the administration of local anesthesia, a direct endoscope is introduced. The operating microscope is brought into the field, and the pharynx and larynx are visualized. The pharynx appears normal. There was a mass noted of the left vocal cord. The mass was approximately 2.0cm in size and was removed in total and sent to pathology for analysis. All secretions were suctioned, and the area was irrigated with saline. The patient had minimal blood loss. It should be noted that the pathology report stated benign tumor of the vocal cord.

Weegy: CPT-4 Code Ranges E/M 99201 - 99499 User: LOCATION: Outpatient, Hospital PATIENT: Glory Ann Borden SURGEON: Mohomad Almaz, MD DIAGNOSIS: Right carpal tunnel syndrome PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Right carpal tunnel release PROCEDURE: The patient was placed in the supine position on the operating room table, where her right hand and forearm were prepped with Betadine and draped in a sterile fashion. We infiltrated the thenar crease area with 1% Xylocaine, and once adequate anesthesia had been achieved, we exsanguinated the hand and forearm with an Esmarch bandage. We then created a longitudinal incision just at the ulnar aspect of the thenar crease and carried the dissection down through the subcutaneous tissue. We identified the transverse carpal ligament and incised this both proximally and distally until we were certain that it was completely released. We identified the median nerve and found that it was free. We did spread the soft tissues surrounding it gently. We then released the tourniquet after 8 minutes of tourniquet time, and bleeding was controlled with pressure and also with electrocautery. We thoroughly irrigated the area with saline. We then closed the skin using 4-0 nylon suture, and a Xeroform dressing was applied under a small pressure dressing. She was taken from the operating room in good condition. She tolerated this very well. CPT-4 CODE: _____________-______ (More)
