Question:
I had to replace the ventricular catheter and the valve on a patient with a VP shunt.  What code should I use?

Answer:
Actually you get two codes!  CPT 62225 is used for the ventricular catheter replacement and 62230 for the valve replacement.  Both codes are appropriate in this scenario.
