Repair innominate vein

  1. Default Repair innominate vein

    I would so appreciate some opinions on how you would code this...

    Dr did a repair of the innominate vein with two sutures and also performed a repair on 2 small areas of bleeding from the epicardium. This was done on cardiopulmonary bypass. Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much

    What about 35211? Not sure it fits your case exactly, just a thought.
