Can you code a vein patch angioplasty with a CABG procedure? Is this considered inclusive? Procedure performed is as follows; The OM1 had a calcific lesion just prior to the bifurcation, it was cut across and a 1 inch anastomosis with a vein patch angioplasty using 7-0 prolene running suture.

As per the CPT guidelines, vein patch angioplasty with a CABG procedure is inclusive in the CPT code.
Hope this helps!
