I would use 45383. I have a note in my CPT book (from my PMCC instructor) that states for APC (Argon Plasma Coagulation) use CPT code 45383. Hope this helps.

I use 45383. APC usually stands for Argon Plasma Coagulation. If unsure of the meaning of APC, ask your physician for clarification. I keep a 'cheat sheet' of all my doctors abbrevations and what they mean.
