CPT Code 37607 vs. 36832

Please note this question was answered in 2013. The coding advice may or may not be outdated.


Is code 37607 used only when the AVF is completely ligated? Example: On page 363 of your Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Coding Reference, we are directed to use code 36832 for ligation of collateral veins that are preventing maturation. If the vein in the AVF is ligated due to steal of the flow, is 36832 still the correct code?
