Need help coding an excise segment of cephalic vein and stent

Yanira Posted Thu 12th of May, 2011 21:03:31 PM

" a longitudinal incision was made over the access of the stent. The radiocephalic AV fistula was chronically occluded. The entire area was fibrotic. A plane was developed around the cephalilc vein at the area of the indwelling stent and the entire complex was resected."

So far I have 36870, but, I know this code is incorrect
