Q3. 26-year-old female with a one-year history of a left tympanic membrane perforation has consented to have it repaired. A postauricular incision was made under general anesthesia. Dissection was carried down to the temporalis fascia and a 3 x 3 cm segment of fascia was harvested and satisfactorily desiccated. The tympanic membrane was excised. Using a high-speed drill a canaloplasty was performed until the entire annulus could be seen. The ossicular chain was examined, it was found to be freely mobile. The previously harvested skin was trimmed and placed in the anterior canal angle with a slight overlapping over the temporalis fascia. Packing is placed in the ear canal, external incisions are closed, and dressings are applied. What CPT® code is reported?
Q4. 70-year-old female has a drooping left eyelid obstructing her vision and has consented to having the blepharoptosis repaired. A skin marking pencil was used to outline the external proposed skin incision on the left upper eyelid. The lower edge of the incision was placed in the prominent eyelid crease. The skin was excised to the levator aponeurosis. An attenuated area of levator aponeurosis was dehisced from the lower strip. Three 6-0 silk sutures were then placed in mattress fashion, attaching this attenuated tissue superiorly to the intact tissue inferiorly. This provided moderate elevation of the eyelid. What CPT® code should be reported?
Q5. 53-year-old woman with scarring of the right cornea has significant corneal thinning with a high risk of perforation and underwent reconstruction of the ocular surface. The eye is incised and an operating microscope is used with sponges and forceps to debride necrotic corneal epithelium. Preserved human amniotic membrane is first removed from the storage medium and transplanted by trimming the membrane to fit the thinning area of the cornea then sutured. This process was repeated three times until the area of thinning is flushed with surrounding normal-thickness cornea. All of the knots are buried and a bandage contact lens is placed with topical antibiotic-steroid ointment. What CPT® code is reported?
Q6. A 60-year-old female with uncontrolled intraocular pressure and early cataracts has been coming in for laser trabeculoplasty.
