Popliteal Vein Aneurysm

  1. Default Popliteal Vein Aneurysm
    Exam Training Packages
    One of the physicians I work with is getting ready to repair a popliteal vein aneurysm. We are trying to get this preapproved through the insurance and I am having trouble finding any codes for venous aneurysm repairs...
    Any one have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

  2. Default Aneurysm repair

    Depends on how you repair.
    There are no specific codes for this - if you do transcatheter embolization you would code for catheterization (i.e. 36011, 36012), embolization (37204, 75894), follow-up (75898).
