Patient has bilateral carotid stenosis; however, only the right is significant and right carotid endarterectomy is performed. The left side is being followed annually with carotid ultrasounds. When patient is seen for follow up of right carotid surgery 6 months later, should the bilateral ICD10 code be reported or only the right?
