Would you use bypass graft code 'with Vein' or 'Other than Vein' if they are using a cryopreserved saphaneous vein? Since they aren't harvesting the patients vein would you go with other than vein.

External iliac bypass to the tibioperoneal trunk, which cpt would you use?
35665 iliofem
35666 fem-anterior tibial, post tib, peroneal
35671 pop-tib or peroneal

:confused:

cryopreserved sv bypass

tammy and cyndii
I am not sure that I would use "other than vein".
the 2019 cpt manual professional edition - page 255 - shows that a 35571 for example (bypass graft, vn)
has the illustration that shows "graft from patient or donor".

any thoughts?
