Which code would you use for endoscopic change of J tube under anesthesia, without fluoroscopic guidance.

If you're changing a gastrostomy tube the code is 43760, but if you are doing a conversion from gastrostomy to gastro-jejunostomy tube the code will be 49446. I hope this helps.

43760 specifically says without endoscopic guidance, and 49446 isn't endo either. 44373 is done endoscopically like the question asked.
