Perc FB Retrieval

Date: Mar 30, 2023

Question:

We have a patient (transferred from a different facility) with a broken J-wire lodged in the anterior leaflet/chordae tendineae complex of the tricuspid valve. Our MD is going to do a percutaneous retrieval. We are coming up with an unlisted code instead of 37197. Do you agree with the unlisted in this instance?
