Question and answer
PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Lesion of vocal cords. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Tumor of left vocal cord. OPERATION PERFORMED: Laryngoscopy. The patient is a 25-year-old student of opera who presented with
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. What is the ICD-9-CM code?

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)

Weegy: Can you please make a summary of this? Make it to the point when you asking question. User: LOCATION: Outpatient,Hospital PATIENT: Sandra Bowie SURGEON: Mohomad Almaz, MD ATTENDING PHYSICIAN: Mohomad Almaz, MD PREOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Medial compartment and patellofemoral component osteoarthritis, left knee. Posttraumatic varus deformity, left proximal tibia. POSTOPERATIVE DIAGNOSIS: Medial compartment and patellofemoral component osteoarthritis, left knee. Posttraumatic varus deformity, left proximal tibia. PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Left cemented Duracon total knee arthroplasty COMPONENTS UTILIZED: Duracon medium femur, M1 tibia, 16-mm (millimeter) posterior stabilized tibial insert, and 20-mm symmetric patella OPERATIVE PROCEDURE: After suitable general anesthesia had been achieved, the patient’s left knee was prepped and draped in the usual manner. Prior to prepping, a thigh tourniquet was applied. Initially this was not inflated. A long anterior midline skin incision was made. Long anterior capsulotomy was performed. Capsular bleeders were cauterized, as were skin and synovial bleeders. The tourniquet was then inflated to 300 mmHg after the leg was stripped with an Esmarch. Entry hole was made in the distal femur. Intramedullary alignment device was used to make the distal cut; 10 mm of bone was resected. Anterior referencing instrument was used. The anterior shim cut was made. Proximal tibial cut was performed. Due to the ramus deformity of the proximal tibia from a previous fracture, about 2 mm of bone was excised medially and about 12 mm laterally. This corrected the varus deformity. The extension gap was then checked. It was felt that a 13-flexion gap would provide an equivalent degree of tightness. This flexion gap was measured. The femur was then sized, and it was felt that a medium femur would reproduce this flexion gap. The 4-in-1 block was applied. Anterior posterior chamber cuts were performed. Trial femoral and tibial prosthesis were performed. ... (More)
