    My doctor and I are looking for the code for left heart cath by cutdown (old code 93511). Does anyone know the new 2011 code for this?

    Hello, I am new into cardiology billing. What would be the codes to bill for a LHC? I know they have all changed this year from looking at the CPT updates. Thanks

    A left heart cath with coronaries is 93458 regardless of whether left ventriculography was done or not.
