Thread: Bush Illuminated Ureteral Catheters

  1. #1

    Question Bush Illuminated Ureteral Catheters

    AAPC: Back to School
    What CPT code do I use for placement of Bush Illuminated ureteral catheters, done bilaterally? Our urologist placed these catheters because the patient was having aortic aneurysm repair done by a vascular surgeon. I have never coded illuminated ureteral catheters placement before. I was looking at 52332 or 52005, but I'm not sure. Help!!

    Are the catheters being removed at the end of the service? Use 52005 if so.
