There are two possibilities: code 92986 - percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty; aortic valve or the Everest II study. If the physician is participating in the Everest II study [percutaneous aortic valve repair system] then your carrier or MAC will have provided coding and billing instructions as part of their study approval correspondence. A typical operations report for code 92986 should indicate an arm or leg incision; placement of two catheters - a central venous catheter and a second catheter that is threaded into the heart. A balloon tip on the second catheter is inflated to open the blocked aortic valve.
