I am having difficulty finding anything that can be billed in the scenario below. Please advise. Thank you in advance.

BSA: 1.89
Contrast: Low Osmolar Visipaque 320-1mL
Heparin given: 3000 units

Procedure: Attempted Venous Decompression

We attempted to gain access via patients right saphenofemoral vein and the left saphenofemoral vein. We were able to gain access, but it was difficult placing the sheaths, and then sheath access was lost on the right, and we were unable to place sheath access on the left. Subsequently, the procedure was terminated. We are going to get better assistance in ultrasound to attempt this procedure.
