Posterior Auricular Artery Catheterization with Angiogram

June 2, 2017

Question:

Would you report code 36228 or 36226 for superselective catheterization with angiogram of the left posterior auricular artery at the origin of the transosseous branches? Here is what the physician documented: "There was successful embolization of large segment of the dural arteriovenous fistula and the tentorial sinus from this pedicle. We then prepared another scepter 4 mm x 11 mm balloon catheter and used the mirage wire to position the balloon catheter in the distal left posterior auricular artery at the origin of the transosseous branches. Superselective angiogram was then performed."
