CPT Codes For Left And Right Heart Catheterization (CPT 93452 – CPT 93461)

CPT 93452 until CPT 93461 can be used for Left And Right Heart Catheterization. The description of CPT 93452, CPT 93453, CPT 93454, CPT 93455, CPT 93456, CPT 93457, CPT 93458, CPT 93459, CPT 93460 and CPT 93461 can be found underneath.

Left Heart Catheterization

The physician threads a catheter to the heart, most frequently through an introducing sheath placed percutaneously into the femoral, brachial, or axillary artery using retrograde technique. Using this technique, the catheter passes through the aortic valve into the left ventricle. Blood samples, pressure and electrical recordings, and/or other tests are performed. ECG monitoring for the entirety of the procedure is included.

Right Heart Catheterization

The physician performs a right heart catheterization for congenital cardiac anomalies. The physician investigates congenital cardiac anomalies by measuring pressures, taking blood samples for oximetry, and/or injecting contrast to assess chamber size and function. The physician places an introducer sheath in a vein (typically, the femoral vein) using percutaneous puncture. The physician places a lumen catheter through the introducer sheath into the femoral vein and advances it, under fluoroscopic guidance, to the heart chamber receiving venous circulation. The physician may use the fluid filled catheter to record intracardiac pressures, withdraw blood samples, or inject radiopaque contrast material. The physician removes the catheter and sheath from the femoral vein. Pressure is placed on the wound for 20 to 30 minutes to stem bleeding.
