Codes for WHFO Clam Shells with Interface

Gary Horton

We have a very unique patient requiring bilateral clam shell AFOs

(custom over cast) and bilateral clam shell WHFOs (custom over cast).

The numerous difficulties required 3 practitioners, the patient’s

mother, 20 rolls of plaster and 2 hours to cast this patient due to his

excessive involuntary resistance. We anticipate the fitting process and

adjustments to be challenging as well.

For the bilateral clam shell AFOs (custom over cast) we will use codes

L1960, L2340 and L2820. We will use code L3907 for the WHFO, but the

problem we’re having is the correct codes for the clam shells with

interface on the WHFO. We would appreciate your help.
