Valve Repair CPT Code

Valve repair is the surgical repair of damaged valve of heart. The repair can be performed with open surgery or with minimal invasive procedure. There are four main valves of heart i.e. pulmonary valve, aortic valve, tricuspid valve and mitral valve. Damage of flaps in these valves may lead to valve repair surgery.

Mitral Valve Repair CPT Code


The mitral valve repair can be done with minimal invasive procedure or with open surgery. A small incision is made on the left side of chest and the damaged valve is repaired. The CPT code used for this process with Tran’s catheter technique is 33418.

Valve Repair CPT Code

Tricuspid Valve Repair CPT Code

Tricuspid valve can be repaired by using an annuloplasty ring. Tricuspid repair surgery can be performed alone or with the combination of other valve surgery. The procedure involves 1 inch incision on the left side. The CPT code used for tricuspid regurgitation is 33464.

Aortic Valve Repair CPT Code

Aortic valve repair involves both open heart surgery and minimal invasive method. The procedure involves a small incision on the left side of chest and then either a catheter is inserted inside body or a surgery is performed. The CPT code for aortic approach is 33365.

Nasal Valve Repair CPT Code

Nasal valve repair is usually performed for nasal valve collapse. The open surgery can also be performed by making a small incision but catheter is preferred. Sometimes nasal dilators are used to treat nasal valve collapse. The CPT code for nasal valve stenosis (narrowing) is 30465.

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair CPT Code

Trans catheter mitral valve repair involves the insertion of a catheter in the valve by making a small incision on the left side of chest. The catheter helps to repair the damaged mitral valve. The CPT code used for this process is 0343T.

Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve Repair CPT Code

The tricuspid valve can be repaired with the help of catheter. In the procedure, a small incision of almost 1 inch is made on the left side of chest and a catheter is inserted inside. The Trans catheter tricuspid valve repair CPT code is 0343T.

Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Repair CPT Code

Minimal invasive procedure for mitral valve repair is Trans catheter procedure technique. A catheter is inserted inside the body by making a small incision on the chest. The CPT code used for this minimal invasive mitral valve repair procedure is 33418.

Robotic Mitral Valve Repair CPT Code

In robotic mitral valve repair, a 3D view of mitral valve is obtained with the help of Vinci high-definition camera. An incision is made on chest of about half inch. The surgeon does not make any major incisions and sternum does not need to be cut. The CPT code is 33418.

Complex Mitral Valve Repair CPT Code

In complex mitral valve repair, both organic and functional mitral regurgitation is treated. The free edges of flaps in this valve is stitched back with the help of suture and a valve is created (having 2 orifices) when mitral regurgitation initiated from middle scallops. The CPT code used for this procedure is 33427.
