I think coding for one arterial graft  and one saphenous vein graft  is an accurate report of the work performed by the surgeon. After harvest, a SVG is sutured at two locations. It makes no difference if the locations are two coronary arteries or a coronary artery and the ascending aorta. An arterial graft is left connected at one end to the arm artery from which it originates and then sutured at the other end. Again, it makes no difference if it is sutured to a coronary artery or, as in this case, to a SVG.
