    HI! I am need of assistance PLEASE.

    Pt had a heart cath with a catheter placement in the neck via commom carotid.

    Sometime later pt had pseudoaneurysm in that area. A endovascular repair was done with a 8mm x 2.5 mm Gore Viabahn endograft in Rt Carotid Orgin, via Lt femoral percutaneous left common femerol access.

    Complete innominate angio was done.

    I am torn on what to code..Any ideas anyone!

    Thank you in advance~

    Hi, My doctor also uses Gore, although I have never had to code an endovascular repair of the common carotid. Anyways, I love their direct site (http://www.goremedical.com/cms/codingna.jsp) gives you an actual breakdown of the cpt codes to use with their products, and the reimbursement. Hope it helps.
