Well this is confusing that is for sure. You really have to study it to pick anything out. Back and forth with sheath and cath placement and removal!
What I see here is the most you can code is a cath placement to the left common Iliac from the right femoral artery. 36245. They entered the right femoral crossed over to the left commn Iliac. At this point a wire was place in the profunda and the rim catheter was advanced, but where was it advanced to? I wouldnt code that part since it doesnt actually tell us where it was advanced. So yes you can code cath placement only.
Does anyone else see anything different? Its early morning and I might not be seeing things right!
