Pulmonary Vein Angiogram??

  1. Question Pulmonary Vein Angiogram??
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi All,
    Does anyone know if code 93541 covers the pulmonary veins??

    I feel soooo confused!

    No. 93541 is for an injection [during cardiac catheterization] in the pulmonary arteries which carry deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle [through the pulmonary valve] to the lungs.

    The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium. I have never encountered a cardiac catheterization where angiography was done or attempted,
