Thread: ARTHROGRAM MR, HIP /left

  1. #1

    Default ARTHROGRAM MR, HIP /left

    Which set of codes will come for this report as per documentation:
    27093/73525
    27093/77002

    For 27093 crosswalk does not lead to S&I 77002.

    The risks, benefits and alternatives to the procedure were
    explained to the patient. The patient understood and gave
    informed consent. The patient placed supine on the angiography
    table. Under fluoroscopic observation an appropriate skin entry
    site was marked for entry into the right hip joint space. The
    overlying skin was prepped and draped in the usual sterile
    fashion. Local anesthesia was obtained with 1% lidocaine. Under
    direct fluoroscopic guidance a 20-gauge needle was advanced into
    the right hip joint. Intra-articular position was confirmed with
    injection of 1 cc of ultravist 300 contrast material. Once needle
    position was confirmed 7 cc of a Magnevist mixture (0.1 cc of
    Magnevist in 20 cc of normal saline). was injected into the hip
    joint space The needle was removed and a sterile dressing
    applied. The patient tolerated procedure well.

    I would code 27093 and 77002. No documentation of any findings, so that's why I wouldn't use 73525.
