Access and lymphangiogram of thoracic duct for chyle leak embolization

Date: Jun 18, 2021

Question:

We had a patient with a chyle leak. Our radiologist performed a bilateral pelvic and abdominal lymphangiogram – percutaneous transabdominal access into the cisterna chyle, catheterization of the thoracic duct, and thoracic duct lymphangiogram and embolization. We coded 37244, 38790-50, 38794, 75807. We are questioning whether an unlisted code is needed for the thoracic duct lymphangiogram?
