    Default Deployment of Aortic Cuff

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a separate code I should bill for these? The description of the device says Talent Accelerant Aortic Extension - this makes me think it may be 34825 but I am unsure.

    That's the right code if you're doing an aaa repair. There are different codes if it was a taa.
