Hello ASDIN Community,


Can someone provide an example of when they would use T82.510A I'm having trouble understanding what would classify as a mechanical breakdown of AVF.


Thank you in advance.

Thanks so much for the post Total Vascular Care! This post was cross-posted to the Physician Blog and we did receive a response. See comment at:
My inquiries have indicated that this code is not typically used in dialysis access endovascular procedures.

I don't think that this code makes much sense as all other codes cover the problems related to the access. I usually use this code if the only problem with the AV fistula is the presence of accessory veins that needs to be obliterated for maturation failure. I do not use this code if the problem is a hematoma or hemorrhage related to the accessory vein.
