transcatheter stents of homograft

  1. Default transcatheter stents of homograft

    How would you code the transcatheter stenting of the homograft with stensois from the right ventricle to the main pulmonary artery for a patient with TOF? The cath report describes the stent placement as being in the MPA. Can I use CPT code 37205 or should I use the unilsted code 93799?

    I believe you should use 37205-75960. I think there is a medlearn article stating this, I once read. I will see if I can find it.

    Thanks so much for your reply and thank you for looking for the supporting documentation for the code choice. I look forward to reading the article if you can find it. Bams
