Axillary-Bi Fem bypass graft duplex

May 18, 2017

Question:

I am not sure which CPT code(s) would be appropriate for this study: "Real time & color duplex U/S was utilized to interrogate the Axillary to bifemoral artery bypass graft. The proximal anastomosis of the bypass originates in the Axillary artery and is patent. The proximal, mid and distal PTFE bypass graft which runs throughout the left lateral chest wall and lower abdomen is patent with normal flow velocities and monophasic waveforms. The right & left groin distal anastomoses is widely patent. The profunda femoris arteries are patent bilaterally. On the left; The proximal anastomosis of the Superficial fem to pop artery bypass originates in the proximal superficial fem artery and is patent. The proximal, mid and distal vein bypass graft which runs throughout the thigh is patent with normal flow velocities & monophasic waveforms. The distal anastomosis terminates in the popliteal artery below the knee and is patent. The pop artery is patent." Would 93978 be appropriate here or 93925 & 93931?
