Av fistula/graft

  1. Default Av fistula/graft
    Medical Coding Books
    What cpt code or codes would you use to report excision of av fistula/graft - infected and not infected

    I know dx code would be 996.62 for infected

    Any responses would be appreciated.

    are they doing a repair or a revision or what exactly are they doing? And you might want to post this in Surgery or Interventional radiology not Urology.
