ubp lidocaine pretzel

Diana Posted Wed 17th of June, 2015 16:39:02 PM

I'm trying to find codes for a new procedure It is called the lidocaine pretzel. This device will dispense lidocaine to the bladder for 14 days and then another cysto will be performed to remove it. Have you heard of this procedure and if there are codes yet for it. I am looking for codes for insertion and removal of the pretzel.
Any information you can impart would be greatly appreciated.

We did not find much information on lidocaine pretzel procedure. We are not even sure if this procedure is payable under US laws. This procedure is under trial in Canada. You should get in touch with your local insurance provider to verify if this procedure is covered or not.
