    CPT 49422 for removal permanent peritoneal dialysis catheter. The ASA code would be 00700, 00800, 00730 or 00820 depending on the location of the catheter.

    As far as dx for h/o aneurysm look at ICD-9 V12.59 if pt is s/p treatment and it no longer exists.

    Thanks Julie! I'm having a hard time with the ESRD patients. Is an AV fistula the same as the PD cath?

    No, an AV fistula is not the same as a PD cath. See 36825 (01844) for AV fistula.
