2. Patch repair aorto-left atrial fistula and repair of the left atrium dome.
3. Complex mitral valve repair with Cosgrove ring and commissuroplasty and closure of sub commissure.

There is no specific CPT code for removal of vegetation and repair aorto-left atril fistula, you need to use unlisted code for these procedures.
For Complex mitral valve repair with Cosgrove ring and commissuroplasty and closure of sub commissure- CPT 33426
For Aortic root replacement with a 25-millimeter Freestyle aortic root- CPT 33863.
