Any info on how to code stent placement via ileal conduit? The only codes I can find that are even close are 50393 (stent placed thru renal pelvis) and 50688 (stent changed via the conduit). The problem with either of those codes is the stent wasn't placed thru the renal pelvis nor was it a “change” via the ileal conduit. :confused:
