Can you tell me what the CPT codes would be for the above procedures-thank you very much--
The leaflets and vegetations were debrided and this revealed a large annular abscess of the aortic valve with destruction of the aortic valve annulus from the right-left commissure to the mid portion of the non-coronary sinus. The abscess cavity was debrided . The annulus of the aortic valve was reconstructed using bovine pericardium.
