Cardiac Cath Lab, having trouble with this case....

  1. Default Cardiac Cath Lab, having trouble with this case....
    Medical Coding Books
    "Patient presents to the Cardiac Cath lab with known diagnosis of arteriosclerotic heart disease. He has no previous history of heart surgery. The following procedures were performed: Percutaneous transluminal coronary atherectomy with balloon angioplasty of the left circumflex coronary artery and percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty involving the left descending coronary artery."

    Are we picking up the 3000, series along with the radiology? Very confused on this one...

  2. #2
    92995.LC for atherectomy in left circumflex (angioplasty will be included)
    92984.LD for angioplasty in the left anterior descending
