    Default bypass graft code for synthetic vein

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, I am looking for a code for a Bypass graft of the common carotid-ipsilateral internal carotid artery using synthetic vein. I am thinking 35601 (other than vein) or (35501 with vein). I don't know what "other than vein" means, but the question is for a synthetic vein. Can anyone help me out? Thank you.

    I do not see how 35638 applies and this code does not answer the question above. Please post more more information. About this question.
