Weegy: The alphabetic index to the E codes is organized by main terms which describe the accident, circumstance, event, [ or specific agent which caused the injury or other adverse effect. Note Transport accidents (E800-E848) include accidents involving: aircraft and space craft (E840-E845) watercraft (E830-E838) motor vehicle (E810-E825) railway (E800-E807) other road vehicles (E826-E829) For definitions and examples related to transport accidents - see Supplementary Classification of External Causes of Injury and Poisoning (E800-E999 ). ] User: LOCATION: Outpatient, Hospital PATIENT: Mary Smith SURGEON: Mohomad Almaz, MD DIAGNOSIS: Right hand fifth metacarpal fracture shaft with angulatory and rotational change due to striking the hand against a closing door PROCEDURE PERFORMED: Closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of right hand fifth metacarpal PROCEDURE: After satisfactory level of general anesthesia was reached and patient was placed in the supine position, the extremity was prepped and draped. At this setting, we could translationally displace this fracture in a manner as to correct valgus and rotational anomaly. She remained somewhat subtly foreshortened and translationally opposed by about 1-2 mm (millimeter). At this setting, I accepted this as an acceptable reduction without opening the skin. We proceeded with the advancement of a single .054 intramedullary pin. AP (anterior posterior), lateral, and oblique views at this time were confirmatory for restoration of alignment as noted fluoroscopically. The patient was then sandwich splint immobilized with ulnar gutter splint and transferred to the recovery room in a stable manner without complication or compromising events.

QUESTION: What code(s) should we report for the following procedure: Closed reduction, percutaneous pinning of the left fifth metacarpal base fracture?

Once general endotracheal anesthesia was achieved, the left upper extremity was manipulated under fluoroscopy to show a mobile fracture that was reducible with traction and manual pressure.

A 0.045 K-wire was then placed on the direct ulnar aspect of the fifth metacarpal base. Fluoroscopy was used to confirm adequate positioning at the base of the fifth metacarpal. The K-wire was then advanced into the fracture fragment into the third and fourth metacarpal base. A second K-wire was then placed approximately 1 cm distal and parallel to the previous K-wire into the fifth and fourth metacarpal. Fluoroscopy was used to confirm adequate reduction of the fifth carpometacarpal joint space and proper placement of K-wire pins. The K-wires were then cut at the level of the skin and buried underneath the skin.

Is CPT code 26605 (Closed treatment of metacarpal fracture, single; with manipulation, each bone) the correct code for this case?

ANSWER: From the notes you provided, I would agree that it would be correct to report CPT code 26605 for this procedure. In addition, I would report CPT code 26608 (Percutaneous skeletal fixation of metacarpal fracture, each bone) because the physician performed percutaneous fixation as well.
