TAVR coding - 33361


Greater Pittsburgh Chapter
Best answers
Surgeon had a TAVR procedure converted to a SAVR (same operative session) because of a ruptured aortic annulus. The TAVR valve had been deployed and the device removed when the pt became hypotensive. They instituted bypass, opened the sternum, removed the TAVR valve, repaired the ruptured annulus, placed the new valve and enlarged the annulus. Looking for some information / direction on how to code this….. do you know what CPT code/modifier you report for removal of the TAVR valve? thanks in advance for your help!
