    How will you code for portal vein and hepatic vein catheterization for embolization for hepatic metastasis in hepatic vein branches through splenic vein access?

    Do we need to code both 36481(portal vein) and 36012*times for hepatic catheterization?

    36011 or 36012 may be assigned in combination with 36481

    Default IVR related link

    Find the details with supportive documents in the following link which states that 36481 can be coded with any selective venous injections.


    Hope this will do.

    Have nice day..
