What would be the CPT for balloon occluded retrograde
transvenous obliteration of varices. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I was wondering (and assuming) that this may have been part of a TIPS procedure.If this was performed through a catheter, then 37204/75894 could apply. However, varices are usually ablated through a direct venous access. This usually is something from the 36475-36479 series or 37765-37785. Without the actual documentation I can not be more specific.
Was this performed through a catheter? Was radiofrequency or a laser involved?
