    Question maxillary artery embolization CPT
    Exam Training Packages
    Stumped! Anyone know the CPT code for a maxillary artery embolization done for uncontrollable epistaxis?

    Thanks in advance for ANY and all input! I appreciate your help...

    Who actually did the embolization?

    If you send me the op-notes to kelly.bazarte@trinityhealth I will get the codes for you. To correctly code this it is a MUST to read the notes specifically any and all cath selections to get there, access point, vessels embolized, etc.

    But you also have catheterization and imaging codes. I would guess 36217 and 75660 at least for the diagnostic angio, and a 75898 for post embolization angio if performed.
