Fenoldopam infusion catheter

  1. Talking Fenoldopam infusion catheter
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello: When doing a heart cath, our doctors have started doing ie; The Benephit catheter was placed in the renal arteries and fenoldopam infusion was initiated. This is done for targeted renal therapy.

    I beleive 37202 would be correct with placement code 34245 but I would like to see if anyone else has ever had experience with this?

    Default Fenoldopam and the drug supply code
    Yes, 36245 would be correct. If you are going into both renal arteries then this would be coded twice along with the 75724. The infusion code would be 37202/75896. I am having difficulty finding the HCPCS code for the Fenolopam (or Corlopam). Do you know what the appropriate code would be for this? Thanks so much. Roseanne
