Cardiology Question for the Week of April 18, 2022


What code do I report for transcatheter ventricular restoration device implantation?


You would report code 0643T. Code 0643T describes a transcatheter left ventricular restoration (LVR) device implantation using an arterial approach. This code is used to treat conditions such as left ventricular failure and congestive heart failure. This code differentiates transcatheter LVR device implantation procedures from other structural heart disease procedures, such as existing transcatheter annulus reconstruction procedures (eg, code 0545T). Understand that previously, no code existed to report this procedure.
