When the ramus and the LAD are stented, it used to be reported as a stent in the LC and LAD.(92980, 92981). 2 vessels from the left side can be reported per Dr. Z 2010 guidance. Now in the Medlern Cardiology manual 2011 and 2012 it states something different. Does anyone know the coding guidelines to report a Ramus stent and an LAD stent for 2012?

As far as I can find the coding guidelines for coronary stent placement have not changed for 2012. So I would still bill the ramus as the LC in this case.
