The provider implants a cardiac contractility modulation (CCM) system, or removes and replaces a previously implanted system, in a pocket created in the right upper chest and attaches electrodes at the end of wire leads that transmit electrical impulses to the right ventricular septum and the atrium to increase the strength of the heart's contractions and treat moderate–to–severe congestive heart failure in a patient not controlled by optimal medical therapy. This code covers the entire procedure including evaluating contractility if performed, programming, and the generator and electrodes.
