    Default ECMO cannula change

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a CPT code for changing an ECMO cannula?
    Thanks everyone!

    I just attended the STS coding workshop this past weekend and we were told that there is no code for this. The STS is suggesting that we use a blood vessel repair code (e.g. 35201, 35211 etc.). Hope this helps!
