    Default Flex sigmoidoscopy with removal of stent

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient had stent placed on 2-16-10 with sigmoidoscopy - I used CPT 45345 - now comes in to have the stent removed. Do I code it as just a regular sigmoidoscopy 45330 or sigmoidoscopy with removal of foreign body 45332.

    Thanks for your help!!!!!!
