    Default Stent Removal - I need a CPT code

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need a CPT code for a vascular stent removal that was in the femoral artery. The Dr. removed it with out using a cath or the guide wires, this is the discription he is giving over the phone What I assume he is saying he was like dissecting the area.

    I would tell him that you need to see an operative report before you could give an accurate code.
