Cardiovascular System: Aneurysm Repair Procedures

Green Clock Hours: 1.00 - 1.50

An aneurysm is a circumscribed dilation or bulging in the wall of a blood vessel, usually an artery, that is due to an acquired or congenital weakness or degeneration that develops in a portion of the wall of the artery. Aneurysms are at risk of rupturing, resulting in potentially fatal bleeding. The goal of treatment for an aneurysm is to prevent and repair rupture. 
This course will focus on coding aneurysm repair procedures using the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set. It will review the codes for aneurysm repair and the coding guidelines and instructions in the Cardiovascular System subsection (33016-37799) within the Surgery section of CPT. The purpose of this course is to help the learner identify the appropriate code for aneurysm repair procedures and correctly apply the coding guidelines using case studies and scenarios. A current copy of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®), Professional Edition is strongly recommended to optimize your understanding of the content covered.
