    Default Calling all Expert Coders

    I am also having trouble locating the correct CPT code for this procedure, Laparoscopic release of median arcuate ligament due to celiac artery compression. My diagnosis code is 447.4, and I am considering using 00770 as my anesthesia code, but I would still like a CPT code. Any information would be appreciated.
