Thread: Removal of Intra-aortic mass with use of Bypass

    Default Removal of Intra-aortic mass with use of Bypass

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of my surgeons performed a removal of an intra-aortic mass with use of cardiopulmonary bypass. He also used epiaortic ultrasound in his procedure to accurately locate the "mobile mass". I don't think code 35761 would be enough for this because the patient was placed on cardiopulmonary bypass during the procedure. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    You may want to take a look at procedure code 33120, this is with the use of cardiopulmary bypass.

    Thanks so much. That's what I'm looking for. Don't know why I couldn't seem to locate that.
