I'm new to cardiology coding and I'm wondering when to use 93580 as opposed to 93581? It's probably something REALLY simple, but when you're new you over think EVERYTHING! :eek:

Thanks!! :)

93580 is for a congentital atrial septal defect closed puercutaneously by catheter.

93581 is for a congentital ventricular septal defect closed percutaneously by catheter.

the difference being "atrial" septal defect and "ventricular" septal defect

or were you looking for a different answer?...

Nope that was it...I thought so but as I said, I'm new and probably over thinking things.
