Thread: Removal AVF- not infected

  1. #1

    Default Removal AVF- not infected

    AAPC: Back to School
    What would the correct code be for removal of arteriovenous fistula when it is not infected?

  2. #2


    Would code 37607 be appropriate depending on what the op note reads
    I would be interested in knowing what you come up with for this - Let me know - Good Luck
