    Have documentation for PTCA, 92982-51-LD, however, documentation states "mid anterior descending", not left anterior descending, leave off LD modifier?

    I would clarify with the physician if he just forgot to dictate mid left anterior descending. My educated guess would be LD for billing.

    My interpretation is that the PTCA was performed in the middle of the LAD. So I would bill it as 92982-LD
