Is this coding corrcet basic on notes

The left groin was prepped and draped in sterile fashion.
A 5 Fr sheath was inserted into the LCIV using micropuncture technique.

The right CFV and SFV were selectively catheterized with a Kumpe catheter. Venograms from the right SFV demonstrate irregularity along the lateral aspect of the CFV, corresponding to the fistula noted by US. No intraluminal defects are identified. The IVC is patent.

A Fluency stent, 10 mm x 40 mm was deployed across the fistula. The stent was dilated with a 12 mm x 4 cm balloon, with excellent apposition to the vein wall, and complete occlusion of the fistula.

The sheath was then removed, and hemostasis achieved via direct manual compression. The patient tolerated the procedure well under conscious sedation.

Impresssion
Successful occlusion of fistulous A-V tract with covered stent deployment in the CFV

Leakage of ascites from the catheter exit site was corrected by suturing the wound.

AAE does not provide coding for operative reports and chart notes.

SuperCoder offers SuperCoding on Demand (SOD) (http://www.supercoder.com/coding-answers/coding-on-demand) for coding of an operative report or chart note and you can contact (866)228-9252 or e-mail customerservice@supercoder.com for more information.
