    Question Percutaneous aortic valve replacement(pavr)

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for a CPT code for PAVR and cannot find one. Am I going to have to use an unlisted code(93799)? Any help is appreciated.

    I would use the unlisted cardiac code 93799. There are no available codes for percutaneous valve placement procedures, only valvuloplasty. This is actually an answer from Dr Z in July 2010. I couldnt find one either!
