    Default Pulmonary Valve Perforation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone familiar with a code for the "pulmonary valve perforation" approach when inserting a percut. balloon into the pulmonary valve?

    Has anyone researched coding for this type of service?

    Any help or input is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    This is not my specialty but look at 92990. Or are you seeking for a separate code for the valve perforation?
