Default CPT help: Central line placement

Procedure reads: Placement of left subclavian Cordis catheter with insertion of triple-lumen catheter through the Cordis catheter.

The doctor noted it as a "central line placement". Any clue on what the CPT might be? I was thinking 32553 but then I thought not because it's for radiation therapy and the pt did not have that.

Help please
