With the new codes for AV grafts 36147 and 75791 how do you code if via one access into the graft the farthest catheter placement is the SVC. Example is declots where via only one access into the graft a fistulogram is performed and declot of graft and SVC is performed. Code 36147 includes fistulogram and cath into graft. Code 36010 includes cath to SVC. Thanks in advance.
