Question:

MD performs open thrombectomy AV graft,does fistulagram,does angiplasty and stent to the axillary vein and finally does open thrombectomy of brachial artery. At one point in time I read that establishing inflow and outflow was considered part of the procedure. Is that correct? Or could we bill 34101,37207,35460,75790,75960 and 75978? I know 36831 is included in 37207. Thank you
