Angiojet and Pronto Thrombectomy

    Ok, my doctor did a stent, ptca, and cath as well as the angiojet and pronto. I have never ever coded the thrombectomy codes before. Can anyone help? He entered through the femoral artery, removing clots from heart, I went to 34201 but not sure what to do for the Pronto or if you can even code for both. Please any help is appreciated!

    Take a look at 92973. I think that is what you are looking for.
