Wiki Removal PleurX Catheter CPT?

is this a pleural cath. that you're removing? 49422 wouldn't fit for that...32999 is what you would use for the removal of a tunneled pleural catheter.
anes code for this?

I was thinking that the CPT for the pleuex catheter would be 32552 but Im looking for the zero code for this that I would use for Anesthesia billing. I dont have a 2010 Crosswalk yet.

There is a new code for the removal of a pleurx catheter and its 32552. If the charge is prior to January, there isn't a code for the removal of a pleurx. I used to bill an E/M instead.
