Maxillary “Enterostomies”

Question:
I’m trying to find a code – can you help me please? I see this a lot – the note says “bilateral maxillary enterostomies” were performed.  What is the code?

Answer:
Oh good grief!  This is a transcription error. Please instruct the transcriptionist to use the term “antrostomy” instead.
