Pulmonary Angiogram with Pressure

May 18, 2017

Question:

How would you code bilateral pulmonary angiography with pulmonary arterial measurement? I have 75743 and 36014, but I'm not sure on how to code the pressures. "A 5 French glide Omni Flush catheter was advanced over the wire. The combination of this catheter and the stiff Glidewire was used to gain access into the pulmonary arterial outflow. Initially, the left pulmonary artery was selected. Pressure measurement was obtained in the left pulmonary artery. Left pulmonary arteriograms were performed with filming in multiple projections. The glide Omni Flush was advanced over the wire into the right pulmonary artery. Right pulmonary artery pressure measurement was obtained. Right pulmonary arteriograms were performed with filming in multiple projections. The pigtail was removed, and hemostasis was achieved using direct manual compression. A sterile dressing was applied. Pressures: Left Pulmonary Artery: 73/23, for a mean of 44 mmHg; Right Pulmonary Artery: 52/33 mmHg, for a mean of 42 mmHg."
