I would be very surprised if the same leads were used for both the trial and the perm implant. The leads for the trial have to extend to the exterior of the patients body to connect to the test unit. Surely the surgeon doesn't then implant these non-sterile leads into the patients body during the perm! We always place new leads.
Anyway, as to your original scenario, you would not be able to bill for a lead revision in the case you describe.
