abscess catheter removal under fluoro
If an abscess catheter is removed with fluoroscopic guidance (not just the suture cut and pulled out), can we show something for this? They didn't really do a contrast injection to evaluate the tube. The one in question is a hepatic abscess catheter. They actually put the guidewire in, but don't state an injection of contrast was done. Then, under fluoroscopic guidance, they removed the tube. We realize that if they just cut the suture and pull it out, we'd be at an E&M.
