would this be the correct coding for this? TIA
lesion was excised careful not to injure any deep anatomy, going deeper thatn the dermis. primary closure not possible due to the significan tension. Markings for 2 flaps each 20% shorter and narrower than the defect were created. flaps created at 30 degrees so final closure was horizontal. Donor flaps incised andelevated to keep its thickness, this flap was placed into the recipient site and sutured, ther first flap was closed in a similar fashion. the final donor site was undermind superiorly and inferior and closed in 2 layers.
