    Hi, it's been a long time since I looked at cardiology services so I am hoping I'm not to far off.

    This is what I have:
    1. Left heart catheterization without left ventriculogram. 93508
    2. Right heart catheterization. 93529
    3. Coronary angiogram. 93545, 93556
    4. Angiogram of both venous grafts. 93540, 93556
    5. Angiogram of right innominate artery. 36215
    6. Angiogram of the left coronary artery. 93545, 93556
    7. Selective angiogram of the right subclavian. 36216
    8. Intravascular ultrasound of the ostial left main. 37250
    9. Angioplasty and stenting of ostial left main. 92980

    I think I don't have this correct but.....hoping someone can set me straight. I no longer have access to my cardiology resources.

    Thanks!

    3. Coronary angiogram.93545 & 93556-26-59
    4. Angiogram of both venous grafts. 93540
    5. Angiogram of right innominate artery. 36215
    6. Angiogram of the left coronary artery. (included with 93545)
    7. Selective angiogram of the right subclavian. 36216
    8. Intravascular ultrasound of the ostial left main. 92978-LD
    9. Angioplasty and stenting of ostial left main. 92980-LD
