Thread: Bypass of vein

  1. #1

    Default Bypass of vein

    AAPC: Back to School
    My surgeons don't often do this so I'm having trouble finding a code for this and worry it's unlisted. Anyone have some ideas for me? I appreciate the help!

    Bypass of subclavian vein to right internal jugular vein using 6-mm PTFE graft.

    I'm use to coding bypass grafts of the arteries, not the veins, that's what has me confused.

    Yes but this wasn't a repair, it was an actual bypass. I ended up using the unlisted code 37799. thanks though!
