Thank u for the DX -
Is there a CPT code for Diagnosis Dissection of RT ICA?
Or does 37215 cover:
Stenting of RT Intenal Carotid Artery - diagnosis Dissection of rt ICA

I do not have an OP Report...Dr's scheduler wants CPTs to schedule the surgery.
I found 37215 for the Stenting....but not sure if there is another CPT for Dissection of RT ICA.?

Thank u for the 177.71 DX. I see what the doctor was saying:
Diagnosis is: Dissection or RT ICA.
And I just learned: Dissection is a tear of the inner layer of the wall of an artery.....
Thank u for that tip.
