    Smile Pulmonary artery aneurysm repair

    AAPC: Back to School
    I really could use some input on this one.

    1. Dysplastic pulmonary valve with mass.
    2. Coronary artery disease.
    3. Large pulmonary artery aneurysm.

    1. Coronary artery bypass grafting x 1. The patient had left internal mammary
    artery to his LAD.
    2. Pulmonary artery aneurysmorrhaphy/repair.
    3. Pulmonary valve replacement utilizing a 27 millimeter epoch bioprosthetic
    St. Jude valve.

    I have 33475 and 33533, but can't find a code for the pulmonary artery aneurysm repair. I was thinking 33335 but would like some other thoughts on it.
