Depends....where was the initial puncture? Were there more catheterizations besides the azygos? In most cases the only code you could use for the RS&I portion would be 75774 (selective VESSEL-which SHOULD cover both arteries & veins however not all insurance companies agree with that). Without knowing all the details of the procedure it's hard to give you a better answer. I want to say that this same issue was recently discussed on a radiology coding forum I subscribe to. I'll look and see what I find and forward to you!
