    Default ascending and transverse aortic dissection

    AAPC: Back to School
    If the physician performs an aortic root replacement and he also indicates that he performed replacement of ascending and transverse aorta with dacron graft, should I bill 33863 in addition to 33870?

    That is what I would do...
