  1. #1
    Default Help coding scenario - percutaneous
    Medical Coding Books
    Please help w/ coding scenario:

    Successful percutaneous intervention using bare metal stent on mid LAD lesion, 70% to 0% psot PCI.
    Angiography of the right external iliac artery with first order right common femoral artery angiography.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I think we need more information. 92980- LD is the code for stent placement. You may be able to bill any diagnostic procedures to determine the need for the stent. I have found most of the time when an injection of dye is performed after a cath. at the site of access it is done for placement of a closure device. If this is the case we just code for the placement of the device and not the angiography.
