Diagnostic Angiography and Revascularization of Lower Extremity

The Catheterization is divided into two types and there are,  Non Selective Catheter Placement Selective Catheter Placement Non Selective Catheter Placement The non selective catheter placement is not to be coded with selective catheter placement together.  And the following to be considered as non selective catheter placement, puncture of catheter, Insertion, and placement of catheter into the aorta.  Also, if the catheter does not have any further movement it should be considered as non selective catheter placement. E.g., When the documentation shows that the catheter placement was only in the aorta, the non-selective catheter placement CPT code 36200 is to be coded. Selective Catheter Placement The selective catheter placement is advanced from the original vessel of puncture sites to another vessels and it should be considered as selective catheter placement. When the catheter is advanced and/or crossed from the aorta and it should be considered as selective catheter placement. E.g.
