HELP!!! Dr. Z - I am looking for a code for open removal of a left groin introducer. This patient was in the CATH Lab and attempts were made to open a long segment occlusion of SFA that was unsuccessful. The patient was then taken to the OR for open removal of the introducer because of the occlusive nature of the device in his left groin. Thank you for your help!!!
