    Default Radial Artery harvest

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi! If a radial artery harvest was done for a CABG but the conduit could not be used, would 35600 still be appropriate. I can not find anything telling me otherwise but I just wanted to get a few opionions!

    Thanks in advance and have a great day!

    As long as it was harvested you can use the 35600. I verifed this at the STS coding workshop a couple years ago.

    I agree with Chris.
