Hemodialysis catheter insertion.
The patient developed acute kidney injury and life-threatening hyperkalemia. The decision was made to proceed with hemodialysis. Patient has a right intrajugular transvenous paper and neck was avoided at all costs as to not inadvertently displace the pacemaker. The right femoral vein was targeted. The area was cleaned and draped. With ultrasound guidance, a dialysis catheter was inserted into the right femoral vein on the first attempt via the Seldinger technique and sutured with place. The catheter was then flushed and catheter tips filled with heparin. There were no complications.
Can someone help with the correct CPT please. Thank you !
