    What do you code for a fibrin sheath ballooning in a perm cath if the fibrin sheath is outside the lumen of the catheter and access is thru the existing central line?

    There was a thread on this subject last year. Click on the search link above and look for "fibrin sheath". There were several good replies, some of them might help you decide how to code this.
