Thread: endovascular AV fistula procedure

  1. #1

    Question endovascular AV fistula procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would greatly appreciate any input regarding the following as I have read confusing info. The patient has a brachial basilic AV fistula. The procedure performed was an angioplasty of the distal basilic vein and angiolpasty of the brachial anastomosis. Am I correct in just coding 35476/75978 or should I also be coding the arterial angioplasty 35475/75962. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Per the 2010 SIR (Society of Interventional Radiology) Supplment Guide, you should only bill the 35476/75978. See page 11....if you do not have it then let me know and I'll forward it to you in case you need it!
