Thread: upper extremity basilic vein transposition

  1. #1

    Default upper extremity basilic vein transposition

    Can anyone assist with the correct CPT and anesthesia code for an upper extremity basilic vein transposition? Patient also had a removal of a IJ PermCath due to malfunctioning as well as a new catheter tunneled and placed. The removal and placement codes would be 36590 and 36561, but I am unsure about the transposition.

    As long as it's open I found the CPT code of 36919 with anesthesia code of 01844. I hope this helps.

    Did you mean 36819? That's what I use.
