    Default Cannulation of the coronary sinus

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a physician is looking for a CPT code for Cannulation of the coronary sinus. Any help? We do it every time we do a biventricular pacemaker or defibrillator implantation.

    33225 is for placing a lead in the coronary sinus for pacing of the left venticular.... I don't think you can code for cannulation alone.
