Thread: Ureteral stent change- HELP

    Unhappy Ureteral stent change- HELP

    I am fairly new to Urology and I'm trying to navigate my way around. I don't have full op reports for the most part I'm coding from a procedure card. I am stuck on one thing and no matter how many times I try I can't find the code. I have several cards stating Ureteral Stent change. In all cases there is a cystoscopy done in addition. I only see a percutanious ureteral stent change. I can't find a stent change with a cystoscopy. Should I go with a removal and then stenting seperately??

    Hi Joan, look toward the cystoscopy codes they begin with 52000. The ureter stent placement is 52332.

    Thank you . Should I also code the removal? It doesn't seem to be included in the discriptor for 52332?

    Per NCCI, CPT code 52310 (stent removal) is included in the 52332 when performed at the same operative setting.

    Thank you
    So I will be using the 52332 for the stent change when there is a cystoscopy. Thank you.
