    Hi List,

    I am stuck on coding some angiograms, please help me!!!!!

    This is all I received from cath lab, could you please let me know if the report is missing any information??

    Left coronary angiography

    Right coronary angiography

    Bypass graft angiography

    LIMA graft angiography

    LM distal main: 80% stenosis

    LAD proximal LAD there was 20 % stenosis

    Mid LAD there was 50% stenosis

    D1 there was a 10% stenosis


    Circumflex angiography: showed minor luminal irregularities with no flow limiting lesions

    Distal circumflex: there was a 50 % stenosis

    OM1: there was a tubular 50% stenosis


    Proximal RCA the distal vessel was supplied by collaterals from the LAD and the proximal RCA there was 100%


    Graft to the mid LAD: the graft was a LIMA: it was normal

    Graft to the 1st obtuse marginal: the graft was a saphenous vein from the aorta there was 95% stenosis

    Any guidance will be appreciated!
