Please advise:

How would you code push entersocopy to small bowel (proximal) with multiple arteriovenous malformations. They were treated with argon plasma coagulation.

Thanks

Confused :confused:

I would use 44369 enteroscopy s/ablation not amenable by hot bx, snare ect and dx 747.61. Unless your doctor was doing this to control bleeding, then cpt would be 44366. Hope this helps.

Check dx code

The 747.61 is a congenital dx code, do you know that this is congenital? Is it in the patient's hx? The code I've found to use for this is 537.82-Angiodysplasia of stomach and duodenum w/o bleeding....537.83 w/bleeding...
