10/10/2012Chambers and valvesOxygenation Process1. Deoxygenated blood enters into right atrium throughsuperior or inferior vena cava2. Tricuspid valve opens and blood drops into right ventricle3. Pulmonary valve opens, and deoxygenated blood movesthrough it into pulmonary artery4. Pulmonary artery sends the blood to the lungs whereoxygenation occurs at the capillary beds5. Oxygenated blood enters back into left atrium throughpulmonarylvein6. Mitral valve opens and blood drops into left ventricle7. Aortic valve opens and ventricular muscle pumps blood upand out into the body through the aorta63

CHD is also called coronary artery disease(CAD). CCoronary artery diseasediiis theh lleadingdi cause off ddeathhin the United States for men and women.9Coronary Heart DiseaseSymptoms Chest pain or discomfort (angina) (most common) Chest heaviness/ Squeezing Pain usually occurs with activity or emotion, andgoes away with rest / nitroglycerin.

10/10/2012CABG – Coding (33510 – 33536) From a coding perspective, the important issues forthe coder to know are the following:How many grafts were performed?How many were arterial?How many were venous?What was used to perform the graft(s)? Radial artery,saphenoushvein,i etc.Did the patient have a previous CABG procedureperformed?CABGThe number and type of graft holds a directcorrelation to the CPT code(s) that will be used.If a patient has only venous grafting performed thefollowing code range is applicable:33510 – 33516Venous Grafting ONLY forCoronary Artery BypassIf a ppatient has onlyy arterial ggraftingg pperformed thefollowing code range is applicable:33533 – 33536Arterial Grafting for CoronaryArtery Bypass12

10/10/2012CABGIf a patient has both arterial and venous graftingperformed then two codes must be reported fromthe following code ranges:33517 – 33523 Venous Grafting for CombinationCoronary Artery BypassNote: These are add‐on codesAND33533 – 33536 Arterial Grafting for CoronaryArtery BypassCABGEXAMPLESPatient has a 3 venous only CABG33512Patient has a 2 arterial only CABG33534Patient has a 3 venous, 2 arterial CABG33534, 3351913

The procedure wouldbe coded as if it was being performed for the firsttime, but then add‐on code 33530, Reoperation,coronary artery by pass procedure or valveprocedure, more than one month after the originaloperation, would be reported also.14

10/10/2012Valve Disease/Disorder Congenital valve disease Bicuspid aortic valve disease Acquired valve disease Mitral valve prolapse (MVP)Valve Repair/ReplacementA prosthetic (artificial) heart valve is a replacement for adiseased or dysfunctional heart valve. There are twotypes of artificial valves: Mechanical heart valveA mechanical heart valve is made of man‐madematerials. The advantage of mechanical valves is thatthey can usually last a lifetime. They do not wear outth way naturalthet l or biologicalbi l i l valvesldo.d15

10/10/2012Valve Repair/ReplacementThe four key types of biological valve replacements are: Pig valves which are actual transplants from the heartof a pig. Cow valves which are made from the pericardial tissueof a cow’s heart.gwhich are human donor valves. Homografts Autografts which are the patient’s own valve used inthe Ross Procedure.Carpentier‐Edwards Mitral Valve3618

10/10/201237Valve Repair/ReplacementCPT codes will depend on the following: Which valve? Repair or replace? Replaced with prosthetic? Type? Was patient on cardiopulmonary bypass?19

The patient was found to have moderately stenotic aorticvalve.l It was ddecidedd d to performfa valvel replacement.lFINDINGS: The left ventricle is certainly hypertrophied The aortic valve leaflet is calcifiedand a severe restrictive leaflet motion. It is a tricuspid type of valve.PROCEDURE: The patient was brought to the operating room and placed in supineposition. A median sternotomy incision was carried out. The patient weighs nearly threehundred pounds.The patient went on cardiopulmonary bypass and the aortic cross‐clamp was appliedCardioplegia was delivered through the coronary sinuses in a retrograde mannermanner. Thepatient was cooled to 32 degrees. Iced slush was applied to the heart. The aortic valvewas then exposed through the aortic root by transverse incision. The valve leaflets wereremoved and the mechanical valve was secured into position by circumferential pledgetedsutures. At this point, aortotomy was closed.20
