aorta graft dx help

    Default aorta graft dx help
    Medical Coding Books
    our provider wants a dx that reflects the patient has had a aorta iliac femoral bypass. the only thing we were able to come up with is V45.81 but he does not like that. Can anyone help with this?

    V45.81 would refer more to a CABG. Ask him about V43.4.
