Thread: Reimplantation of mesenteric artery

    Default Reimplantation of mesenteric artery

    The surgeon reimplanted the mesenteric artery after aortobifemoral bypass. Can this be coded separately and which CPT code would you use?

    Look in CPT book at codes 35121 and around there. Or, there is an add-on you can take a look at and that is 35697. Hope this helps.
