my patient had a vaginal delivery the placenta was delivered spontaneously intact, no lacerations were noted ,even though the fundus was firm and well contracted there was persistent bleeding Pitocin was given followed by insertion of misoprostol in conjuction with fundal massage. Vaginal exam revealed persistent bleeding with blood and clots extracted from the lower segment, at this point the patient was brought back to the OR where D&C and placement of a Bakri balloon was performed. What cpt code do I use for the Bakri Balloon? Is there a modifier I should attach to the codes to get payment? Thanks!
