Postoperative Diagnosis:
1. Unruptured large left posterior wall internal carotid artery aneurysm
2. Left eye temporal visual field cut.

Procedures Performed:
DIAGNOSTIC CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY:
1. Percutaneous transarterial access of the right common femoral artery under direct sonographic guidance, continuous image interpretation and permanent image registration.
2. Right common femoral arteriography
3. Selective catheterization of the right common carotid artery.
4. Right common carotid artery cervical angiogoraphy, AP and lateral views.
5. Right common carotid artery cerebral angiography, AP and lateral views.
6. Selective catheterization of the left common carotid artery.
7. Left common carotid artery cervical angiography, AP and lateral views.
8. Selective catheterization and cerebral angiography, left internal carotid artery, cranial views, AP and lateral.
9. Left internal carotid artery rotational angiography with 3D post processing reconstruction on a separate workstation.
10. Left internal carotid cerebral angiography, magnified views working angles #1.
11. Left internal carotid artery cerebral angiography, magnified views working angles #2 (RAO2, CAUD17; RAO9, CAUD 17)
12. Left internal carotid artery cerebral angiography, post embolization magnified working angles #2.
13. Left internal carotid artery cerebral angiography, cranial views, AP and lateral.
14. Translational fluoroscopic image acquisition with post-processing reconstruction into computed tomography angiography ( Stent protocol ).

ENDOVASCULAR NEUROSURGERY:
1. Transcatheter, transluminal, transarterial Pipeline flow diversion of a posterior carotid wall left internalcarotid artery aneurysm.

My coding:
Diagnostic Angiography:
36140
76937
75710
36223-50
36224
75898 - for proc 9
76377 - for proc 9
75898 - for proc 10
75898 - for proc 11
75898 - for proc 12
75898 - for proc 13
????? - for proc 14

Endovascular Neurosurgery:
61624

Is the above coding correct?

Thx
Ken
