    Default Intracoronary stents 92980 92981

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'd like clarification. If 2 intracoronary stents are placed in the same main vessel should this be coded 92980-LD and 92981-LD? If not, how should it be coded?

    If the stent was performed in the same vessel you can only code 92980-LD.
