Renal Vein Pressure Measurements

Date: Jun 18, 2021

Question:

My provider wants to do a left renal vein venography with pressure measurements via right groin. This is for pelvic congestion syndrome. I am wondering if there is a code for a special catheter for these pressure measurements. The codes that I would use (36011, 75831) do not say anything about pressure measurements. I just want to know if I should be using a different CPT code besides the basic catheter.
