Wounds are classified as either being partial thickness in nature (depth of injury only extends to the dermis but not beyond the subcutaneous tissue) or full thickness in nature (damaged tissue which extends down thru the epidermis, dermis, and involves at least some subcutaneous tissue, muscle, tendon or bone).
Indications The scope of this LCD does not address debridement of burns (CPT codes 16020-16030) or negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) (CPT codes 97605 and 97606).
