arthrectomy and thrombectomy

  1. Default arthrectomy and thrombectomy
    Medical Coding Books
    can you code for a arthrectomy in an access when doing a thrombectomy? ( in a dialysis fistula)

  2. #2
    Default
    In this situation, I can only provide SUGGESTIONS to you regarding your question. In the case of a balloon angioplasty without insertion of stent and arthrectomy look to codes:

    35475 36870 36147 0235T

    If you research these codes, this will be a good starting point for you.

    Hope this helps
