There is no dx, I am doing a comparison between Category III T-Codes (0258T) and current Cardiac CPT codes. I am looking for a CPT code that is similar to 0258T (Transthoracic cardiac exposer (eg, sternotomy, thoracotomy, subxiphoid) for catheter-delivered aortic valve replacement; without coronary artery bypass).
