    Default 93454 & 93458
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to help out with a Cardiology question and want to double check my answer:

    Procedure:
    Left Heart Catheterization
    Left Ventriculography
    Bilateral Coronary Angiography

    The Dr wants to use 93454 & 93458.

    Can he do that?

    Nope, you are wrong. The left heart cath includes coronary angio. and either lt ventriculography or LVEDP.
