Thread: Cephalic Vein to Cephalic Vein interposition graft

    Default Cephalic Vein to Cephalic Vein interposition graft

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient has a failed AV fistula - I am having a hard time finding a cpt code for CEPHALIC vein to CEPHALIC vein interposition graft - should I used unlisted or does someone know of a code that would work? Thank you.

    If he was revising the same AVF, it would be 36832...
    If it was a new fistula, it would be 36830...

    Thank you for the reply - that is what I was thinking - I think I am missing documentation...
    I verify. Thanks for the help.
