What would be the correct CPT code for Nasogastric ( NG ) tube replacement by a physician under fluoro

Greetings from SuperCoder.com!
Replacement of Nasogastric (NG) tube should be coded as placement of a new NG tube. So you should report code 43752.
43752 - Naso- or oro-gastric tube placement, requiring physician's skill and fluoroscopic guidance (includes fluoroscopy, image documentation and report)
