Thread: Malfunction of AV graft - Can someone give me

    Default Malfunction of AV graft - Can someone give me

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone give me the CPT code for the following.

    Dx: malfunction of A-V graft

    CPT: fistulogram, angioplasty and ligation of graft.

    I'm thinking I need more information such as the op report?

    You should have an op note...

    I'm coding for anesthesia and we dont normally get the op report unless we request it. This is a medicaid patient so I need the CPT.
