    Default Open Removal of Groin Introducer

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all - I need some assistance coding an open removal of a left groin introducer. Our patient was taken to the CATH lab for peripheral intervention which was unsuccessful due to occlusion in the SFA. THe patient was then transferred to the OR for open removal of the introducer. I cannot find a code for this.

    Look at codes 33960 through 33983, depends on what you mean by "introducer."
