Thread: crytotherapy after balloon angioplasty

    Question crytotherapy after balloon angioplasty

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm not sure where to find the code for cryotherapy. This patient had iliac balloon angioplasty done also balloon cryotherapy done during the same operation. This is the first time i ever seen cryotherapy done after angioplasty.

    any help would be so greatly apprectiated!

    I think cryotherapy is an unlisted procedure. One of our interventionalists was planning on doing the procedure, I am almost certain he said it is an unlisted code. Please post the info if you find the code.

    Good luck with this one,
