axillary artery cannulation

Best answers
The surgeon I work for performed a aortic valve rplacement and also did a intraaortic ballon pump placement which I have coded. The question I have is he also performed a right axillary artery cannulation with 8mm dacron graft repair patch angioplasty during the same surgery. Is this billable? If so could someone please give me direction as to what code might be appropriate to use.
