There's a discussion in our office, What CPT code to use for this procedures.


Here's a brief description of the surgery....

The physician is entering the foreman ovale of the Trigeminal nerve. Inflating a balloon device for a few seconds, then deflating the balloon. He does this about two times, something entering the V2 & V3 branches. He using fluroscopy C-arm during the procedure.

I say use CPT code 64610.

Other say use 61790.

Please comment.

Thank you
