Continuous saphenous nerve cath

  1. Default Continuous saphenous nerve cath

    What CPT code is best to use for a continuous saphenous nerve cath for post op pain?
    Thank you!

    "The saphenous nerve (n. saphenus; long or internal saphenous nerve) is the largest cutaneous branch of the femoral nerve."

    Above I saw on Wikipedia

    If you were doing a single injection of saphenous nerve it would be 64450

    Since it does not look like their is other peripheral nerve branch continous infusion

    Could use 64999 compare to 64448

    Not aware of a resource that has addressed your particular question, so just a suggestion.
