For 2012 they have deleted the 75722 and 75724 and replaced it with 36251-36254. I am confused on how I would code a cath with the selective bilateral renal angiography. With this note I would code it as a 93459/26 and 75724/2659. But, the code has been deleted. What would I use. It just seems to me that the new codes are a little more detailed then what I need.

In desperate need of help :confused:

In the past you should have coded the appropriate heart cath code along with 36245 (x 2 if bilateral) and 75722 or 75724.
Now you would code the appropriate heart cath code along with the appropriate code from 36251-54. Most likely 36252 if bilateral study is done. The new codes include the catheterization (36245) and the S & I (previously 75722 or 75724).
