    Default Aortic Valve Mass

    AAPC: Back to School
    How do you code for removal/debridement of an aortic valve mass. These were done during other heart surgeries.
    "Aortic Valve debridement of papillary fibroelastoma"
    "Removal of aortic valve mass"

    Thank you, if you need more details from the op-note let me know!
