If a doctor took a patient to the cath lab to undergo a left heart cath and decided at that time admission to bring the patient back to the cath lab on another date for PTCA/stent placement, would modifier 58 be the correct one as it is now a staged procedure???

Thanks for the help!

? about stent placement code

Diagnostice catheterization have a 0 global follow up days. A staged procedure with the catheterization on one day and the stent on another does not required a modifier on the stent.

I hope this answers your question.
