Av graft creation

  1. Default Av graft creation

    I need to know what code to use for a left brachioaxillary arteriovenous graft placement when they use tunnel a 4 X 7 atrium graft to connect the two.

    Would this be 36821 or 36825?

    Anyone performing these procedures I would love to email you and get some help.

    Hi Donna~

    As long as the graft is harvested from the patient, 36825 would be your code of choice. 36825 is used if it was a direct end-to-end anastomosis - no graft involvement.

    Hope this helps!
