What code would I report for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with recurrent coarctation of the aorta?


You would report 33897 percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of native or recurrent coarctation of the aorta. Do not report 33897 in conjunction with 33210, 34701, 34702, 34703, 34704, 34705, 34706, 36200, 37236, 37246, 75600, 75605, 75625, 93567, 93595, 93596, 93597. Also, do not report 33897 in conjunction with 33894, and 33895 for balloon angioplasty of the aorta within the coarctation stent treatment zone. For additional congenital right heart diagnostic catheterization performed in the same setting as 33897, see 93593, 93594. For angioplasty and other transcatheter revascularization interventions of additional upper or lower extremity vessels in the same setting, use the appropriate code from the Surgery/Cardiovascular System section.
