I think that as per documentation we can code 36468
36468 Single or multiple injections of sclerosing solutions, spider veins (telangiectasia); limb or trunk
The physician inserts a tiny needle through the skin and directly into the tiny, distended veins in the arms, legs, or trunk. A solution (hypertonic saline and other solutions) is injected into these veins. The solution causes the walls of the veins to become inflamed, collapse, and stick together so the veins close.
Venous Malformation Means:
1)Venous malformations comprise either superficial or deep veins that are abnormally formed and dilated. The walls of these vessels are thin because they lack smooth muscle. They are the most common type of vascular malformation. Although they usually are present at birth, they may not be seen until years later. The natural history of a venous malformation is slow, steady enlargement.
2)Sclerotherapy. This approach entails injecting an irritating solution into the lesion in order to shrink the abnormal veins. For larger lesions, it is sometimes used along with surgical excision. Multiple treatments are often required over time.
