Atherectomy – Cardiac
Atherectomy is a minimally invasive procedure for “debulking” atherosclerosis. Different types of atherectomy techniques include but are not limited to orbital, rotational and directional. There are many pros and cons to each product and the patients anatomy and disease state will determine which is the best therapy. Some may extract the plaque while others break it up into small particles which then get absorbed by the body.
There are several different types of atherectomy devices.
The C-Code used for the Jetstream Atherectomy System is C1724. C-Codes are used for hospital outpatient device reporting for Medicare and some private payers.
